Working Collaboratively

Georgetown offers many ways to communicate with colleagues and work collaboratively using technology.

Business Continuity.  Working remotely and conducting academic and administrative business during times when the university is closed or you come down with an extended illness.

Computer Labs Labs are located at many locations on campus. Labs contain Mac and Windows computers, as well as many commonly used software programs. 

Docusign. Docusign enables students, faculty and staff to easily and securely collect electronic signatures on documents sent to colleagues, collaborators and partners on campus and around the world.

Google Shared Drives. Part of the Georgetown Google Apps suite, you can share any drive with GU administrative and academic colleagues. (Note: There is a 100 GB storage limit on Google shared drives.) Anyone with access to the shared drive co-owns that drive, and can access that drive from any location with an Internet connection. From within your shared drive, you can edit (and add comments to) Google Docs documents simultaneously in real time, and all your changes will be autosaved.

GU360. GU360 is a Georgetown-branded, scalable technology interface that will add greater flexibility to the way Georgetown faculty, staff, students, and alumni, communicate and interact with one another on a daily basis.

Smartsheet. Smartsheet is a web-based software tool used for collaboration and work management, as well as to assign tasks, track project progress, manage calendars, share documents, and manage other work tasks.

Space Reservations & Events.  Eventbrite is the university’s tool that you can use to set up and manage ticketed events (e.g., training workshop, conference, lecture, symposium, music performance). You can also use the GU Events Calendar to publicize an event. Students, faculty, and staff can use the Georgetown Room/Space Reservation System to reserve a university room/space for their event.

Web and Audio Conferencing.  Tools to enable you to conduct meetings and other collaborative sessions remotely.

Websites. The Web Services team is your one-stop source for information on web development at Georgetown University.
