In our group time zone played a big factor in how we communicated. When it was only the afternoon here, it was night for our international group members. This made it a little difficult for us to all get onto Skype at once. Once we were all on, we all got along really well and could all share our ideas equally. I know I am personally very busy outside of class with two jobs and school work so it was often hard for me to take time out of my busy schedule to meet with my group.
We use WhatsApp to communicate via text and use Skype or Facetime to communicate face to face. Texting is easy when we all cant be in the same place at once or cannot be on the phone. Video chats helped so we could communicate faster and all be on the same page at once. If we were to do this assignment again, I would make sure I set aside enough time to put more effort into my part of the timeline and also to make our final presentation better.
