{anchor:I. Purpose}
h1. {color:#ff6600}{+}I. Purpose{+}{color}           
----
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.

\\


h5. \\ {color:#0033ff}View Next Actions at a Glance{color}

\\
Voo2do allows the user to see the next actions at a glance. The dashboard shows the highest-priority tasks and their due dates, highlighting overdue tasks in red. !personal and work.png!
 

h6. {color:#0033ff}Organize Tasks{color}\\

The program lets users organize tasks into projects and contexts. Contexts, previously called views, let one see a group of projects together. It's like having a separate Voo2do account for home, work, or any other context.
\\
 
\\

\\

h6. {color:#0033ff}Review Deadlines and History{color}\\

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.
\\ !review and edit.gif!
 
\\
\\

h6. {color:#0033ff}Assign and Publish Tasks{color}

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.

h4. {color:#009900}Incorporating Voo2do in Project 2{color}

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.

There is an empty field so you can enter in your project title. After you fill out what the name of the project is, you will click create and the project title will then appear below underneath the heading Active Projects. To organize your tasks into the projects that you created, you have to go back to the tasks tab and then in the field for one of your tasks you can type in the name of your project. Then it will be added into that project folder that you can access in the projects tab underneath the heading Active Projects. If you do not want to go to the projects tab to just see the projects and then click on the projects to just see those tasks associated with that project, you can then just view all of your tasks on either the tasks tab or the dashboard tab. Do not forget to always save everything after you edit the field.

h4. {color:#009900}What other features does Voo2Do offer?{color}


h5. (*g) {color:#ff0000}Collaboration{color}

\\
Under the collaboration tab you can create a collaborative context or a public task list. The collaborative context is where you can view your projects together. With this view you can assign people a task. Voo2Do is working on improving this feature so when you assign someone a task it will show up in their task list, but just for now, it's just so you can see who is working on what tasks so your project it well laid out and you know what else has to be done to complete everything that needs to be accomplished in a timely matter. The public task list is for if you want others to be able to view your tasks. To create a public task list you click on public task lists under the collaboration tab. You'll then be taken to a page where you can choose if you want to publish a project or a context. After you choose which one you would like to publish, you then choose the location, which is the URL that others will use to view your project or context. You can protect it with a password so only those that you give the password to know it or you can choose to have it remain public for everyone to view. You can also add notes about your project or context. You will then click publish. You now have a published context or task list\!

h4. {color:#009900}Teachers across the United States are encouraging the use of  Voo2Do by their students, to help them get their assignments organized.  For this reason and others, Voo2Do is being recognized across the globe as a valuable source of education. {color}


h5. {color:#0033ff}Current Uses:{color}

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.

* A teacher could ask a student to create an account and make them add so many tasks, notes, and projects. They can then ask the student to make it a public task page so they can visit the page after the student sends them a URL of their public task page.  The teacher can then grade them on completion or whatever they choose to.
* Voo2do could be assigned by a instructor as a means of coordinating a group project; This would be especially effective if the class had an emphasis on familiarization with technology.

They can use the collaborative context to assign a task to everyone who is involved in the project. They could also make the task list public and set a password on it so only those who are working on the project can view the project and its tasks and who has to do what. It will keep everyone on task and make sure that the project gets completed in time.
* In the world of business and industry, Voo2do could be used as an interactive planner for the individual worker in much the same way that it could be utilized by a college student,  as a simple tool for keeping track of their personal work and deadlines for the company.

h1.  {color:#ff6600}{+}V.+{color}{color:#ff6600}{*}{+}Unique{+}{*}{color} {color:#ff6600}{*}{+}Ways of Using Voo2Do{+}{*}{color}
----
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.
\\

h4. {color:#009900} {color}{color:#009900}{*}{+}Learner{+}{*}{color}

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.

h4. {color:#009900}{*}{+}Teacher{+}{*}{color}

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.

* An elementary teacher is creating a website for her students about U.S. Presidents using Adobe Dream Weaver.  The teacher is trying to find a time to create the website, but is having trouble because she also has her daughter's soccer game, a PTA meeting,  parent-teacher conferencing, and a field trip to plan\- all in the same week\!  Thankfully, she knows about Voo2Do and how easy it is to make a list and prioritize all of her busy activities.  

* Our Confluence group used Voo2Do to set deadlines for our tasks on Confluence.

h4.  {color:#009900}*...but it's the BEST one\!\!  Why?*{color}

The features (on the tabs) available on Voo2Do such as dashboard, tasks, projects, collaboration, notes etc. allow for it be an effective organizational tool in relation to other applications. Other applications such as Remember the Milk, are harder to navigate or know how to manage your tasks. Voo2do is very easy to navigate which takes one more worry out of our hectic schedules.
\\

h5. {color:#0033ff}Voo2Do has unique features that are specific to this application.  Those features include, but are not limited to:{color}

(*r) Dashboard

"\- what to work on next,
\- when you're at risk of missing a deadline,
\- whether you can reliably commit to a new task."

One application that could be beneficial to Voo2do, due to the competition in the world of online organizers, is the function of mobile phone updates. When researching the other organizational tools I realized that this would be a very useful tool for many since their life may be "on the go". Mobile phone would help people use Voo2do who do not have a desk job and are always in different locations.

h4. {color:#009900}{*}Voo2Do could definitely be used in other countries.  There is not a place you can go in the world where organization is not important\!*{color}


h5. {color:#0033ff}The Problem: Language Barrier{color}

* The problem with Voo2Do being used on an international scale is that there is a language barrier with the application.  Unless a video is created to show people how to use the program, they will not understand because the whole program is in English.

h5. {color:#0033ff}Possible Solutions{color}

* Instructional video using a screen capture could be used to show international partners how to use Voo2Do.

* In an email to Brittany Robertson, Shimon Rura told her that he had been working on the language barrier to increase his following of international users.

{color:#ff0000}{*}Once the language barrier is broken, users all over the world could access and integrate this program into their lives to help them get organized\!*{color} {color:#ff0000}{*}They could create their own tasks and projects on Voo2Do in their native language. *{color}

h5. {color:#3333ff}Voo2do is the best{color} {color:#3333ff}fit for getting things done (GTD).{color}

h5. {color:#0000ff}{*}Disadvantages of other task managers used in Korea:*{color}

# +Trac+ \- To view the projects in progress, you must click on them.
# +Remember the Milk+\- already see a work history that can not be erased except those shortcomings are due. 

h4. {color:#009900}{*}Koreans do not use Voo2do for a "GTD". But one Korean thinks Voo2do seems to be the most appropriate program.*{color}


h6.












* A Korean man blogged about a method created by David Allen, called GTD (Getting Things Done).  His method looks like it suits the specific purpose Voo2Do was created for.  
* With Voo2Do you can:

           - create projects, projects plans (tasks)

           - can decide what action to take

                        a) do it

                        b) prioritize your tasks

                        c) assign the task to someone else

                        d) set deadlines

                        e) time your tasks

h2.












h4. {color:#009900}While Voo2do is not widely used in Korea, there are many similar programs that Koreans prefer:{color}



{color:#0033ff}1. Franklin Covey planner{color}

* Unlike Voo2Do, the Franklin Covey planner  has spread internationally and is used in Korea because of its adaptability to foreign countries.
* There is a cost to purchase a Franklin Covey Planner.  This money has allowed the company to expand and put money towards adapting their product for international users. Voo2do is an absolutely free application. 
* Since Voo2Do is free, there are only so many changes that Shimon Rura (creator of Voo2do) can make to the program.

h5. {color:#0033ff}2.{color} {color:#0033ff}Google Calendar{color}

Google Calendar is a free Web-based mail account. With Google Calendar, you can share your calendar with friends and even retrieve their schedules. Another benefit of using Google Calendar is that Microsoft (MS) Outlook can search the information.

h5. {color:#0033ff}3. Yahoo\! Calendar{color}

 {color:#000000}The{color} {color:#000000}Yahoo\! Calendar{color} is similar to Google Calendar or other online calendars. A nice feature of Yahoo\! Calendar is that you can choose which events you would like to be public and which you would like to keep private.

{anchor: VIII. The Future of Voo2Do}
h1. {color:#ff6600}{+}VIII.+{color} {color:#ff6600}{*}{+}The Future of Voo2Do{+}{*}{color}
----
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...
