Working Collaboratively

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

  • Broadcast E-mail You can set up a list to communicate with large groups of people at a time.
  • 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.
  • Google Shared Drives. Part of the Georgetown Google Apps suite, you can share any drive with GU administrative and academic colleagues. Anyone with access to the shared drive co-owns that drive, and can access that drive from any location with an Internet connection. You can edit (and add comments to) drive documents simultaneously in real time, and all your changes will be autosaved.
  • Computer Labs Labs are located at many locations on campus. Labs contain Mac and Windows computers, as well as many commonly used software programs. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
