Spreecast

Spreecast | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it
Spreecast is the social video platform that lets people broadcast together.
helpingmedia's insight:

They call it "The ultimate live video experience" with the chance to interact live with individuals and groups, post questions live onscreen, share and embed. Could be good for groups of stringers reporting on a news story from multiple locations. Have just signed up for an account but not tested yet. Please add any experiences below.

Very clever. Dabbleboard free online whiteboard

Very clever. Dabbleboard free online whiteboard | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it

I've been playing with this tool but yet to publish anything with it. I like the way it imports documents and images on to the whiteboard and then you can draw and write around the assets, publish, share and embed. Will test in a blog when I get time.

 

Wondering if the company is still operating, though. Last tweet was the middle of last month and last forum discussion was some time ago. Also, the how-to video isn't working. The product looks good.

 

From the site:  "Online whiteboard that's free, powerful and easy-to-use. Draw with flexible tools. Collaborate in real-time."

Spundge - collaborative curation | Social media kitbag | Scoop.it

Spundge lets you collaboratively discover, curate, and create better content.

helpingmedia's insight:

This could be good for news teams involved in collaborative news gathering. I read about it online and will test it and report on my blog.

Just blogged about this in the hope of attracting some comments from journalists who have tried it for news gathering. http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org/blog/share-your-spundge-content-collaboration-experiences/

Live text collaboration with invited guests. Could be great for developing a news project with a group of journalists.

Can't you do the same thing with Google Docs?
helpingmedia's comment, April 17, 2011 3:11 PM
Hi Pablo, probably. I like the way you can collaborate over an issue - as I did today testing this with a colleague in SE Asia - and create an html doc with embedded elements that you can then save or upload.
Could be good for working on a project/article together. This site is not about either or, it's about listing all the tools that can benefit journalists. David

Understood. I mentioned Google Docs since it already appears to be a popular solution and wanted to point that out for people who were interested in this functionality ;-)
