Abstract: Collaborative technologies accelerate information flow to drive revenue and productivity. Effective collaboration has become a business imperative. Professionals in all walks of life – from salespeople to health workers – must be able to access and share key data instantly from wherever they happen to be at any given time. The interest in social networking and collaborative software is pervasive, from people using tools outside the work environment to fully sanctioned wiki environments inside organisations. Senior technology and business decision-makers need to face up to this new reality by bringing disparate social networking and collaborative tools under a cohesive, enterprise-wide computing infrastructure. Collaborative learning activities can include collaborative writing, group projects, joint problem solving, debates, study teams, and other activities. The present paper aims to present the main collaboration tools and examples of collaborative projects in order to give new ideas to the readers for the design of new collaboration applications.
