This wiki project required you to work together with your peers to accomplish your task. There were some frustrating moments during this project and most of the time it focused on working with the "OTHER" team. Even though there were some rough times you all did very well.

Please write about your experience with collaboration during this project. If you are stuck you will see four blog-starters below. Please write 3-5 sentences in your paragraph.
  • What did you learn about collaboration through this project?
  • What are the benefits of collaboration?
  • What are difficulties of working with other people?
  • Why is it important to learn to work well with others?
Thank you,
Mr. Ferrell
