rtcollaboration is a new type of assignment. It's a collaborative real-time editor that works like Google Docs (in plain text, I'm working in the rich text editor feature..)
Two or more users can work at the same time in the same document. When you type a word the text is updated in real-time for the other users
Groups are supported but are not very well tested in this beta version
Teachers can review their students job, for every student the total account of chars added or deleted by him in the text is displayed in the submissions view of the assignment0
Teachers can "replay" the users interactions with the editor. Highlighting is not supported yet.
This is a beta version tested only by me, please use this forum to report bugs and new features suggestions.
