Voo2Do can be used to plan big projects, such as this one.  Or even just household chores that need to be done in a given week.  The beauty of Voo2Do is that you set deadlines for less than sixteen hours-which inevitably FORCES you to plan for your project.

I. Purpose          ">I. Purpose           


Voo2do is a program designated to keep one organized and it helps to use time more efficiently. With this program, not only can one make to-do lists for themselves, but they can also 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 know where projects stand in the aspect of completion.

            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 one to 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 person 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.

Review Deadlines and History\\">Review Deadlines and History

Also, Voo2do can review deadlines and history. The deadlines tab shows you what needs to get done this week. The history tab shows you what you've done, making status reports, invoices, or reviews easier than ever.

 

Assign and Publish Tasks">Assign and Publish Tasks

Finally, Voo2do allows the user to assign and publish tasks. With this, one can make an area for active collaboration. Tasks can be assigned and the publishing of a project can be viewed. In the following picture a collaborative group has been formed.

The user also has the ability to publish a task to a public task list. This is basically a webpage that allows others to see, but not edit, your lists. This is great if you want co-workers or other family members to see the list, but not be allowed to edit that list. You have the option to password protect the page, allowing only people you want to see your list be able to do so.

Incorporating Voo2do in Project 2">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.

Forest Park High School lists Voo2Do on the school's website as an online education resource.  The school recommends that students and teachers use the application for time management.

Teacher, Tony Whittingham, is making his students complete a project using Voo2Do to organize the tasks of their project.

In a 2006 article called,  "Seven Things To Watch in 2006 And Beyond," Voo2Do is rated as number two on the list. This shows how Voo2do has been around for the past three years and the recognition that it is currently receiving for its educational value. To be acknowledge as number two on a list such as that is quite a feat.

A man named Chris Brogan, was trying to create an Online Workflow.  He wanted to make it so that a person could manage their projects and give them a network for collaboration, as well. He also wanted this system to be absolutely free.  One component of the design that he created, included using Voo2Do to plan this Workflow and keep the project organized.

Voo2do is helpful for busy people.That is the main target for Voo2do customers because busy people are the ones who need it the most. Busy people need a tool to help them organize their tasks and priorities. Students are also busy people who have a lot of projects and assignments to focus on. Through the different applications Voo2do provides. Using the time management and groups, Voo2do can help students stay on task and do things on time.

V.UniqueWays of Using Voo2Do"> V.Unique Ways of Using Voo2Do


As mentioned previously, Voo2Do is a high-tech online planner which can be utilized by both teachers and students. The purpose of using this application is that it increases a person's overall productivity when undertaking one or more tasks. The following are unique ways of using Voo2Do for both a teacher and learner.

 Learner"> Learner

1)     Assists students with the organization of personal schedules such as extra-curricular activities, part-time work commitments, volunteer work, exercise and recreational activities, appointments etc.
2)     Allow students to record what homework they have due for each of their classes on a daily or weekly basis.
3)     It allows students to differentiate what work has been completed and what is pending with the help of the history feature on Voo2Do.
4)     The notes feature on Voo2Do enables students to write reminders for a task or project which they will attend to later instead of writing on Sticky Notes which can easily be lost or misplaced.
5)     Enables a student to plan deadlines for various parts of an individual project.
6)     Enables students collaborating on a group project to track progress of the specific tasks they are required to complete in order to fulfill the requirements assigned for their particular role. My group using Voo2Do to plan our deadlines for Project 2 is a good example of how this application can be used to track progress of tasks for individual roles with a group project setting.
7)     It also allows students completing group work to publish their task list so other group members can view this. If the group prefers to not go totally public, they can set a password which is required to access the task list.

Teacher">Teacher

1)     Allows a teacher to list their daily, weekly or semester deadlines such as organizing homework activities, newsletters to parents, fundraiser activities, teacher meetings, collecting resources for future lessons, parent-teacher conferences, dates for standardized tests, incursions/excursions.
2)     Teachers can use Voo2Do to organize their personal schedules.
3)     It allows teachers to differentiate what tasks have been completed and what is pending with the help of the history feature on Voo2Do.
4)     The notes feature on Voo2Do enables teachers to write reminders for a task which they will attend to later instead of writing on Sticky Notes which can easily be lost or misplaced.
5)     If there are group projects which teachers are collaborating on over a certain period of time such as tandem teaching for a particular lesson then a person's individual roles and tasks required can be tracked over time.
6)     Teachers who have collaborated on lessons or tasks can publish their work so other teachers can view this. If privacy is required, a password can be set in order to achieve this.

VIII.The Future of Voo2Do">VIII. The Future of Voo2Do


The world wide web is always changing, and so are many of its applications. Voo2Do is no different with these respects. While we can remain fairly certain that Voo2Do will be around for a while, as the developer Shimon uses it himself, we are not always sure. The always fluctuating price of web space is always influencing prices. Shimon doesn't always guarantee that Voo2Do will remain a free application, but he assures us "if Voo2do does get turned into a money-grubbing corporation, I'll do my best to make it an honest, reliable money-grubbing corporation that won't let down people who have come to depend on Voo2do as a free service." Another option that Shimon has considered is developing a premium version, with even more useful features.

What is to become of this neat and useful web application only time can tell...

    Hi, everyone!(big grin)

    I'm really excited about working with all of you on making this wiki chapter about Voo2Do! It's going to be a learning experience that we will all benefit from... We have a long but exciting road ahead of us and it's time that we get started.(smile)   Now that you have successfully logged in, and seen what Confluence is about, go ahead and browse this wiki and all of its functions. 

    There is also an assignment on BlackBoard that you must complete this week ("Confluence Online Discussion Assignment").

    Like you, I am just learning what this website is all about. Basically, each page that we create in our wiki (this page) is called a "child".  Each page will be a question that we must answer about our application. You have the ability to go in and edit each "child" within our wiki chapter. As you are researching our application (Voo2Do), and you find information that benefits our project, enter that research until the "child" labeled "Voo2Do Research".  If for some reason, you run into any problem with Confluence, you can go to http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~haagard/utap/confluence/. ; This website has tutorials on using Confluence.  If your question is still not answered by those, you may contact me and I will help you find the answer to your question!  

    Now, if you would, just take a second to leave a comment on this page that tells me a little about yourself and what you are looking forward to about this project....even though most of us are all in the same lab, I don't believe I've gotten to talk to all of you, so I'd like to know you better before we start working together....I'll just start by saying that I'm a freshman and an elementary education major.  I'm from Frankfort, Indiana, which is about 30 minutes away from Purdue.  I have one younger brother that is a junior in high school.  I love music!!  I was in show choir in high school and I took piano lessons for 8 years. What I'm most looking forward to about this project is getting to work with our Korean student!! (thumbs up)   So go ahead and leave a quick comment!

    Thanks,

    Brittany Robertson

    P.S. The items in red font are things that you  MUST do this week!! Let's get off to a great start on Project II

      Hey team!!

      So I'm not going to lie, I'm really stressed out about this project.  But.. I think we need to work really hard to get an A!! Who wants to take a final exam? Not. me.

      You can check my profile to learn some info about me, but here are some basic facts. I was born in California, moved to Kentucky, and now am in Indiana. Hometown for me is in Fishers IN. I have a younger brother named Spencer.  In highschool I cheered, and I am trying out for the team for purdue this next year. I was very involved in choir as well!! I did both show choir and concert choir. I was the secretary in National Honor Society. Here at purdue I'm in the sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma.

       I'm excited to get involved with this project, becuase I know once we get started it will get easier.

      Hey!

      I'm a freshman and currently an elementary education major. I am from Greencastle, IN which is about an hour away from Purdue. I have a younger brother who is a freshman in high school. Him and I are pretty close which is so nice! I was in choir, speech team, and many other fun clubs while in high school. In my free time, I hang out with my best friend that I met during Boiler Gold Rush. Her and I like to ride the bus and see where it takes us.

      I'm looking forward to working with the international students. I am with Megan when she says that she is totally stressed about this project.

      Hi everyone!

      My name is Divya and I'm an exchange student from Perth, Australia. I'm a Junior majoring in Elementary Education. I have 2 younger sisters and enjoy playing team sports, spending time with my friends/family and travelling.

      I'm looking forward to this project as it it something new and getting to know the people in my lab! I'm hoping it'll become easier to navigate this program once I'm familiar with it.

    1. HI all in Voo2Do

      So far so good ?!

      I'll suggest your team start to write the chapter as soon as possilbe. If you have time, just post a small portion a day. In the end of this week, make sure you guys fill up initial draft in each children page of your chapter. Take group two- Teacher-tube as an example. Then you will know how much you should put in. It's kind of when you are doing the quiz during the lab. Present your topic points with a sentence and give examples with good details. Then it will be a good paragraph for a sub question.

      As to the 10 questions list by Dr. Newby, they are not written in stone. So your team can base on your web 2.0 to add in or trim some of the questions to make it more meaningful to your application.

      Hope I've answered your questions. Anything I can do, please let me know.

      Best, Shih-Ping (smile)

    Week 3 of Project

    • Let me know ideas that you have for the showcase presentation- try to have some ideas we can talk about for lab time tomorrow! We must have our ideas by Sunday by midnight (November 16)
    • If we need to get materials (such a laptops, extension cords, brochures, etc.) let me know your ideas so that I can assign tasks and let Shih-ping know so she can get us materials from iTap! 
    • Continue to revise the wiki chapter.  Let's make it pretty and better!
  13. Hello, my name is Eunjung, and I'm so sorry that I couldn't participate in this project.

    That was because of my mid term exam, as I'm senior, I had many exams for major subjects.

    I have a few questions about what i should do as a developer. 

    It would be relieved if you understand that my English isn't good, but  I'll do my best with this project.

    I'm glad that i can join this group.(big grin)

    1. Unknown User (brrobert)

      Hello Eunjung! I'm Brittany, the project manager!  I am SO glad to hear from you(big grin) Don't worry about your English, I can understand it quite well!! And also don't worry about being so busy, I know how stressful this project must seem to you...we are also stressed out about it, but together we can do it! (thumbs up) Just check this page everyday, that will help you stay connected to us!

      I need you to add information to our page called "Voo2o International".  How can Voo2Do be used in Korea? Please get this information on the page before SUNDAY (November 16, 2008).

      As a developer, we were wondering if you would create a video with the other International Partners. Don't worry about making it complex.  It could be a short video about what you have learned about Voo2Do and how Voo2Do could be used in Korea.  Then we could play your video at the showcase presentation here on December 4.  It would be like you are here with us!!  A video with our international partners would REALLY benefit our group's progress.  PLEASE consider it! 

      Thank you! (big grin) Welcome to the group!

      1. ok!!(smile)   i understand your comments!!  

        Voo2o International".  How can Voo2Do be used in Korea? Please get this information on the page before SUNDAY (November 16, 2008).

        -> Yes, sir. I'll upload as soon as possible. This program is not used in Korea, I think.

        In South Korea because it is a program that does not use it well,  Can I  write about  another program something like korean Schedules ?  (including Voo2Do)
        I want to know your opinion! 

         Create a video with the other International Partners. Don't worry about making it complex.  It could be a short video about what you have learned about Voo2Do and how Voo2Do could be used in Korea

        -> ok!   But It take a little time to create video! Can we upload video until the end of November? I'll work hard to create video with other International Partners : Yeon Soo Park, Minhee Kim. also we was wondering if we make a video in the form of an interview or do we need to create another type?

        Thank you for your kind reply. (big grin) 

        1. Unknown User (brrobert)

          Voo2o International".  How can Voo2Do be used in Korea? Please get this information on the page before SUNDAY (November 16, 2008).

          -->Even if you can not information about how it is currently being used in Korea, just be creative.  How could you use Voo2Do to schedule your tasks in college? You can also say that because Voo2Do is not a Korean application, you use another program.  Tell us a little bit about that program and why it is better than Voo2Do.

           Create a video with the other International Partners. Don't worry about making it complex.  It could be a short video about what you have learned about Voo2Do and how Voo2Do could be used in Korea

          -> ok!   But It take a little time to create video! Can we upload video until the end of November? I'll work hard to create video with other International Partners : Yeon Soo Park, Minhee Kim. also we was wondering if we make a video in the form of an interview or do we need to create another type?

          Can you have the video done by Nov. 25?  That would give us time to make sure that the video will work and that we can get the video in time.  If that is too soon, let me know. We can work it out! (big grin)   You can make the video in the form of an interview. We would like all of three our international partners to participate, if possible! Just be creative(wink)

          Thanks very much,
          Brittany

          1. Can you have the video done by Nov. 25?   yes!!!!!! (smile)

            Also all of three our international partners are going to participate in making video  (star)

            1. Unknown User (brrobert)

              Terrific!!! Thank you guys so much for working on this project with us, I'm very excited about it!(big grin)

  16. Unknown User (mroof)

    hey britt. sorry to bother
    I'm having trouble. I would love to add in a couple of print screens to my page and I have them saved, but I have nooo idea how to add them in. Could you teach me?

  17. Unknown User (brrobert)

    Hey megan, you should be able to add print screens by clicking the image button when you go to the edit part of your page.  The image button is the square button that is yellow with a mountain in it.  If you click there, you can brose the image and then click attach to attach the image to the page.  Then click on "ok" and it should show up!

    Let me know if that answered your question!

  18. Unknown User (brrobert)
