Collaboration refers to an instance where two or more people work together to achieve a common goal, such as completing an application, raising money, or finishing an artistic project.
This term is often used in technology to indicate that people or organizations cooperate on software, applications, websites, or other technical projects.
How can you collaborate?
Google Drive and programs on Google Drive like Google Docs (word processor) and Google Sheets (spreadsheet) can make it easy to collaborate with people. For example, you could use Google Drive to share any of your files and use Google Docs to have multiple people edit a document at the same time.
A revision control service like GitHub allows multiple users to collaborate on a project without overwriting each others' work. Typically, most revision control services allow programmers to develop the same program. However, it can also help multiple people (collaborators) work on other projects like writing documentation, creating a website, and others.
Using a good CMS (content management system) like WordPress allows multiple people to work on a website at the same time. Other services like a Wiki facilitate people coming together to create a knowledge base of information about any topic.
To teleconference with others, services like Zoom allow you to easily remotely connect and communicate with multiple people at once. In addition to video communication, these types of services also have features like whiteboards that allow participants to draw, and show presentations.
