Documentation:Social Web Tools/Collaborative Writing
[from Wikipedia] The term collaborative writing refers to projects where written works are created by multiple people together (collaboratively) rather than individually. Some projects are overseen by an editor or editorial team, but many grow without any of this top-down oversight.
In a true collaborative environment, each contributor has an almost equal ability to add, edit, and remove text. The writing process becomes a recursive task, where each change prompts others to make more changes.
UBC In Practice:
A small guide for collaborative writing and available writing tools and technology are available here with brief descriptions of the individual pieces of software.
