A Case Study: Google Collaboration Applications as Online Course Teaching Tools

Google Collaboration Applications enable college faculty to provide their students with innovative communication and collaboration opportunities. These diverse online applications geared for productivity and collaboration (Thompson, 2008) are ideal for the higher education environment and enable undergraduate students to prepare for the workforce by learning how to use cloud computing software. Some corporations and small businesses are adopting cloud computing software as a cost-cutting measure. This paper focuses on an online speech communication course in which the professor utilized Google Collaboration Applications, such as Google Documents and Google Presentations, to interact with students. In addition, this paper focuses on the differences between the students' self-efficacy levels before and after completing Google Collaboration Application assignments. Las aplicaciones de colaboración de Google, sirven para apoyar a los profesores universitarios con oportunidades innovadoras, para comunicarse y colaborar con sus alumnos. Esta aplicación online orientada a la productividad y la colaboración, es ideal para el entorno de la educación superior y permite a los alumnos de pregrado prepararse para el futuro, aprendiendo a utilizar software de computación en nube. Este documento se centra en un curso de lenguaje de comunicación online en el que el profesor utiliza las aplicaciones de colaboración de Google (por ejemplo: documentos de Google y presentaciones de Google), para interactuar con los alumnos, y una investigación del nivel de auto-eficiencia de los alumnos y cómo le influyen -positiva o negativamente-, las aplicaciones de Google antes y después del curso.
