Wiggio - Group Planning and Scheduling

Wiggio is a new collaboration tool designed to make scheduling group meetings easier. Wiggio is also intended to be used as a resource for group planning of projects. I gave Wiggio a try last night and found it has a very clean and intuitive user interface. Some of the features of Wiggio include a group calendar, a mass messaging system that works with cell phones and email, and a group polling system. For groups that are working on projects together Wiggio offers a shared folder for files and links.

Applications for Education
Wiggio is a simple tool that academic clubs and sports teams may find useful. For younger groups where parents provide transportation, the group polling tool will be particularly useful for coordinating meeting times and or car pooling. Wiggio is also a great resource for high school and college students trying to coordinate meeting times and the completion of group project tasks.
