The Purpose of Voo2do
Voo2do is a program designated to keep one organized and helps to use time more efficiently. With this program, not only can one make to-do lists for themselves, but also they can write notes, view projects, and keep track of important deadlines. Voo2do can be thought of as the next generation of personal planning. The Voo2do program was made for those who may have many projects to work on at once, those who constantly jot down ideas so they can later work on them, for those who need to prioritize, and finally for those who need to knew where projects stand in completion aspects. #1
Voo2do can be convenient for those of all ages. For parents, Voo2do can be used to keep their child's schedule in line. With keeping track of rides to school, sports, grades, parent-teacher meetings, etc., it can be easy to become flustered and forget a simple PTO meeting to attend. Not only will Voo2do assist in keeping plans organized, but also remembering deadlines. Remembering deadlines can also be helpful to a worker in a business setting. Falling behind in work for a major corporate job can be detrimental to one's profession. Voo2do allows in helping one avoid simple mistakes. Voo2do is not only available to older citizens, but to younger ones as well. A student can use Voo2do in a helpful manner when learning to manage and keep track of their own schedule. Each can use Voo2do in an original way. For example, a football player may use Voo2do to keep track of important practices and games, while the valedictorian of the school may use Voo2do to remember important tests, papers, and meetings that must be completed.

Incorporating Voo2do in Project 2
In order to become more aware of the purpose of Voo2do, our group has agreed to become better organized in the development of our project, by utilizing the program of Voo2do. Because this program allows so many options for keeping on task, we have decided to use Voo2do to plan our Web 2.0 project. By using and interacting with this program, our group has learned the true purpose of Voo2do; that is to aid in the organization and efficiency of project planning.
