Group writing assignments, such as multi-author book-writing projects,
have traditionally been confined to manually reviewing and emailing
documents through a word processing program. But now with UMVibe,
UMB faculty and staff can share, comment, review and edit documents
regardless of their geographic location. In addition to collaborative
document management, UMVibe also allows faculty to create and access a
shared project calendar and conduct private online
discussions, either in real time or asynchronously. Task management
(personal and team), survey creation, workflow building, blogs, wikis,
and threaded discussions are also included. All interactions take place
in a secure environment where
data is tracked and protected. Faculty members can invite students, as
well as colleagues from other
institutions to participate on their team.
UM faculty and staff members automatically have
accounts on UMVibe through their UMID and password, you may login here. The University maintains a support and training website to assist you in creating your own workspace.
