    Google Docs

    Hi all, quick question

    We are looking at getting students to collaborate on documents (all at once) and I wondered if anyone had any experience of using google docs for this purpose.

    We have signed up for Google Apps Education Edition (Which is free ) to try this but don't won't it to fall over if 30 kids are accessing the same doc at the same time.

    Any thoughts please?

    For Documents, Google Apps will only support 10 simultanious users. Spreadsheets is higher though.
    Collaborating : Simultaneous editing and viewing - Google Docs Help

    We're just starting to use Google Apps. We tried it once in a staff meeting - we wanted everyone to contribute their ideas to a shared document. It kinda worked - but after a while it stopped saving citing an error with google. We had 20 simultanious users I think, spread accross 3 docs. It might have been because the net connection here is rubbish or just a one-off problem with google.
    We're going to try it again on Monday with 10 simultanious users.
