My experience have been great so far in starting the Group Wiki Project. Me and my group members work collectively as a team. One of the group members are in Japan and which she is in a different time zone from the other group members. However, as a group we manage to meet weekly that is comfortable for everyone schedule. We meet weekly on Thursdays at 6:30 PM Eastern Standard Time Zone. My group makes me very comfortable to work with. Everyone in the group does their part and makes the group collaboration even more comfortable. Everyone in the group works collectively and put in 100 percent effort. Also, the professor assigned the groups and members within the groups. There has been no arguments in the group or misunderstandings.
