"Great tool for the classroom!"

What do you like best?

Bluescape is a great way to share real-time lectures with students in and outside of class. Having this shared work space allows for students who are less likely to interact to still participate. It has also been a great collaboration tool and a great way to track progress throughout the course. Bluescape allows for creativity and flexibility in the classroom. Students have a lot of fun interacting with the wall and being able to participate from their desks or even from home. Uploading from several platforms is also very helpful and the autosave is great. One of my favorite features is the meet option, this allows for even stringer collaboration with members not present in the same location. I hope to use this more this semester to provide more feedback on this function.

What do you dislike?

Some of the tools are a little difficult for non tech savvy people. The canvas is a little difficult to use since once it is placed if cannot be moved. I preferred the location marker feature, and or give the possibility of moving the canvas. Zooming was also an issue in the classroom, it is difficult especially on devices such as laptops and tablets to zoom. There is a lag on these devices so it would be nice to have a zoom function that you can select a polygon of where you want to move. Notecards are a little small, but extremely useful for creating activities.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is great for collaboration, group activities, and classroom management. Wonderful software for large and small groups. Very visual and fun to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collaboration across disciplines has been a challenge that this tool has given some solutions too. Visuals are always great to explain detailed topics. Being able to have bluescape as a live brainstorming canvas is fantastic.

"A great tool for communication"

What do you like best?

Bluescape has been an incredibly helpful tool to connect with other industry leaders in real time and seems to have a boundless potential to portray and endless amount of information. It is quite simple to navigate once you get the hang of the space.

What do you dislike?

I would definitely like a tutorial on all the other potential key features that I have not used yet

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend a tutorial before using this product as it can be a bit overwhelming to navigate once you are using the tool

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Some benefits have included connecting with other similar industries across North America in one place where we can all refer back to a specific area of the board and post about industry trends or any questions we may have.

What Team Collaboration solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Bluescape Is "AWE-some" says my students!"

What do you like best?

The visual way it allows people to collaborate. I use this as a "teaming" tool for my undergraduate business students. Each team has a workspace where they collaborate on a semester-long project as well as individual competitive exercises. The product is far better than our learning management solution for teaming purposes.

What do you dislike?

Had better integration with MS Office documents for editing. Currently, we can use Google docs and such successfully, but we'd like to be able to edit Word & Excel documents without having to download and then edit and re-upload.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is easy to set up and start using. Try it out and within 30 min you can tell if it will work for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Bluescape for teams to collaborate and innovate. This is an excellent tool for my students (or in a corporation, my employees) to work together sharing ideas, posting comments, and generally working as a high-performance team.

"Accessible anywhere, anytime, and with anyone! "

What do you like best?

We love the real-time changes that can be seen by anyone in the space, from anywhere around the world! And the video/phone conferencing tools. Makes collaboration so much easier!

What do you dislike?

When sharing the space, you need to add guests as "collaborators" and they have to make an account. Maybe create a guest mode where someone doesn't have to create a bluescape account, and can see the space, but cannot download files?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Faster video/screen-share capability.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Design in Real Time! We are able to make instantaneous changes with our clients/architects/coordinators all in the same room. Cuts out a lot of email trains of decisions bouncing back and forth. One meeting gets the job done!

"Love to design in real time!"

What do you like best?

Design Collaboration with the team that allows everyone into the process

What do you dislike?

Trying to keep up with the changes, but once I get into it is easy to adapt.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try; it's fantastic

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can show the development of the design based on concept all the way to installation. I can post typicals, standard finishes and recommended product lines and get collaborative feedback in less time than previous projects. Meeting definitely is more productive and there's real clarity on what is needed. I especially like that it can be done anywhere because it is accessible online and had an easy interface to invite a guest.

"New Experience"

What do you like best?

I like that you are able to upload and share direct links and documents to colleges.

What do you dislike?

It is a little confusing to use at first, but afterward, you get the hang of it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I mainly used it for a class project and we used it for our group projects. The benefits of Bluescape is that everyone in your workspace can see the shared documents, videos, links, from the web or files from your computer.

"Feeling my way through the darkness while seeing tremendous light at the end of the tunnel"

What do you like best?

The ability to have real-time collaboration from anywhere. The potential this type of collaborative program will provide.

What do you dislike?

The program still feels somewhat green with some of its functionality; like the ability to undo or its ability to identify which user contributed content, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hang in there, provide open and helpful criticisms.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've been able to collaborate more often and on "our own" schedules.

"Amazing tool for scribing!"

What do you like best?

We loved the large-scale scribing ability for our event!

What do you dislike?

We had some difficulty figuring out how to export the final image in one file.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used a Bluescape for two Workplace Innovation Summits and loved working with the team! The technology allowed us to live-scribe the insights from our speakers while the audience looked on. The entire Summit was captured in one beautiful image, and our audience LOVED it. We have a bit of difficulty figuring out how to export the final image, but we figured it out and have been promoting it far and wide :)

"Bluescape is great!"

What do you like best?

I am in an organization in college, and we use Bluescape to post photos from our research and documents for our meetings. It is very useful because we can collaborate on documents and participate in the meetings, even if we aren't physically present at the meetings.

What do you dislike?

It is slightly difficult to move around on Bluescape, as you have to click and drag to move on the wall rather than scroll with the mouse.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is very beneficial to our members because we can collaborate easily on documents and other related items

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch some videos and use the helping tutorials because it can be confusing at first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to share a lot of information between my team members. It is very useful that there are tools on YouTube that can show you how to use Bluescape.

"Bluescape exceeds expectations"

What do you like best?

The ability to post an entire project history on the Bluescape wall makes it an invaluable collaboration tool for our design team. I only wish there was a version available for personal use.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything I dislike. Whenever we have a technical suggestion it is addressed and solved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a group collaboration tool for a 30+ person design team, Bluescape makes it easy for us to share projects and information.

What do you like best?

Ability to share multiple forms of media, large size file, multiple party sharing.

The zoom function is counter-intuitive (should be the default iPad/iPhone way)

Constantly moving and sliding things around inadvertently when moving around.

Slightly cumbersome uploading/sharing/

It is better than Dropbox/Box.net/Drive for sharing creative brainstroming and project folders
