Wiggio.com is a new web application that makes it easy for students to work in groups. From high school through college, students are constantly working in groups (everything from academic project teams to clubs, committees, sports teams, labs, sections, boards, etc.). Wiggio gives these student groups a free toolkit of functionalities that make it easy to collaborate and get things done. These tools include a shared calendar w/ text message reminders, easy file sharing, mass text and voice messaging, polling (ask your group a question and get aggregated answers in real-time), conference calling, link sharing, and more. Wiggio was developed at Cornell, with the goal of giving students the easiest possible solution to working in groups.
