Collaborative Writing: Edit, Comment, Compare and Revise with Editorially

Robin Good's curator insight, September 9, 2013 7:23 PM



Editorially is a collaborative free online editor which focuses on making it easy to revise, modify and comment on any text. With a minimal and inobtrusive UI, Editorially shines when it comes to see different contributors edits to the same text or to compare different versions of a story by different editors.


To format text the Markdown annotation approach is used, freeing the user from having to deal with menus and buttons.


Editorially automatically saves new versions of your text and it makes it easy to go back and see every single revision and edit made.


It is possible to import plain text files and to export both Markdown and HTML. All mobile devices and screens are supported.



My comment: Elegant, simple, easy to use. It offers powerful revision features making a very good alternative to other collaborative editors.



Free to use.

Let's Stop Focusing on Shiny Gadgets and Start Using Tech to Empower People | Wired Opinion | Wired.com | Connect The Thoughts | Scoop.it
In the simple reframing from technology to empowerment of people, I believe there’s something everyone one of us -- whether designer, programmer, entrepreneur, investor, teacher, student, parent, or child -- can learn from Red.

How To Implement Blended Learning | Edudemic

How To Implement Blended Learning | Edudemic | Connect The Thoughts | Scoop.it
Blended learning can be a great way to make use of whatever technology tools you do have, rather than needing specific technology that you don’t have. Blended learning doesn’t require you to have a 1:1 classroom, a certain number of iPads, or particular software, though you can put any and all of those things to use as you choose. Thus, blended learning covers a lot of ground – and in the process it helps to make learning more engaging, effective, and efficient.
