My name is Victoria Parker and I am an Atlanta native. I am an outgoing person who isn't afraid of a challenge. I am extremely motivated in all that I do and try to in turn motivate those around me. I received my primary education from metro Atlanta public schools, and I am currently enrolled at Kennesaw State University working on a degree in International Business with minors in Japanese and dance.

Team JELLO Research Paper: Asynchronous Collaboration Rough Draft
There are a few different methods of asynchronous communication. The most basic asynchronous collaboration is the transferring of information from a common place but at different times. Distributed asynchronous communication is the distribution of information at different places and times.
There are many different venues available for the purpose of asynchronous collaboration. WebCT for example, is a viable venue for this type of collaboration. It fits into this category because there is one common wall or discussion thread, but it can be accessed by many different computers at the same of different times. Email would also be considered asynchronous collaboration if there is a list of people the original email was sent to. There are countless methods of collaboration tools that would fall under the asynchronous category WebCT and email are only a few. Things that would not be considered asynchronous methods of collaboration would be AOL instant messenger, Facebook chat, or tangible mail.
There are still procedures to be followed even with this less formal method of collaboration. Members of the designated team are expected to respond to messages, not just read them and absorb the information. Posting new comments onto previously viewed ones is expected if there is a common idea. When message threads get to long it is proper to develop new ones so that information is not lost and mixed up because of volume. New topics and ideas are expected to have their own threads and not to be linked to older topics or ideas. In producing the message dialog is brief and to the point. Links to information and web pages should be attached or placed at the bottom of the message. The subject box should contain a specified topic and the address lines should have only the necessary respondents not the entire address book.
The basic communication ethics code is also to be held up even in cyberspace. Proper grammar is expected as well as appreciated. Web speak is commonly thought of as disrespectful and will often be over looked or ignored. Paragraphs and ideas should be broken apart into separate structures. There should be a proper salutation and conclusion in methods such as email. Discussion threads are a little bit more relaxed and should instead just indicate the intended audience.
