Visual collaboration for your projects

Sunday, July 1st, 2012 by Servage

Collaboration tools are not a rare sight online. Especially those related to project-management, trying to give you a framework for collaboration, tools etc. However, visual collaboration is moving into the market as well. It’s for example already pretty great to code simultaneously with multiple developers in the same source file, while seeing changes in real time, for example with different colors.

For design collaboration and exchanging conceptual ideas by adding elements, structures, text snippets etc. onto a table, the offline collaboration has been superior for a long time. But maybe this is changing with CanvasDropr, a tool which lets you work like this online. Essentially you get an area (canvas) on which you can place elements. This can be done with multiple partners in real time, and embedded into virtually anything online. The develops describe the features:

Powerful Visual Collaboration
Drop files onto a canvas, a virtual blank sheet. Visualize ideas. Share, edit and collaborate with an unlimited amount of people at the same time. All changes happen real-time on all screens. Create amazing stuff together.

Real-time presentations across platforms
Invite anyone to add to and see a presentation of content in your canvas. The presentation is synchronized across platforms – web and mobile – no matter where in the world the viewers and presenters are located. Use it to e.g. make synchronous PowerPoint presentations to viewers across the world right in their browser, on their mobile device or iPad.

Embed everywhere
Think of the canvas as a virtual container where the content you drag in can be embedded where you want. Embedding images or videos on your homepage? Just drag them onto a canvas, insert the canvas code-snippet on you own site and you have a perfect slideshow.

This could be the new way of collaborating to build your new website draft.
