Wk 10 – Creately.com – Collaborative Diagram Tool

October 25, 2011

This finding came about when I was messing around with zeemaps during wk9. I wondered if there is a map tool with collaborative functionality what other similar products are out there. Check out how it can help me both academically and professionally.

My greatest finding is creately.com, a tool that has limitless uses. The goal of this tool is for teams to work together on a visualplatform to help gather ideas together and produce final piece. For this class purpose its a great way to create a sitemap and make the connections between how each page connects with each other.Awesome too if you really want to get into website development. You need to brainstorm how each page will connect with each other before you start designing and developing. As the web rule of thumb goes… don’t make the user go above three clicks to get to their location..

Hopefully this may come useful to everyone as they are gathering their thoughts and approach for the final project.

    This seems like a great resource – but also so much you can do on/with the website I’m still browsing trying to figure it all out. I get the collaborate part – kind of like a Google doc but with diagrams? I see that they collaborate with Google docs/apps too. Thanks for sharing Rene!

    This really does look like a cool tool! For me making flow charts and diagrams has always been very tedious and time consuming. I’m interested to see how can put this to use for school and also for work. =)
