Wales in View

Wales is a country in southwest Great Britain known for its rugged coastline, mountainous national parks, distinctive Welsh language and Celtic culture. Cardiff, the capital, is a refined coastal city with a nightlife scene and a medieval castle with ornate Gothic Revival interiors. In the northwest, Snowdonia National Park has lakes, glacial landforms, hiking trails and a railway up to the peak of Snowdon.

The group worked really well together, I felt it was a collaboration rather than just an exercise.  I would say this was a successful partnership and we achieved out goal.


There were some great sites shared via the syncronous Hangout chats.  The sharing of resources shed new light on unexplored corners and highlighted some options that may not have come to light had I been left to my own devices.


Collaboration can bring some very interesting information that you may not have thought of to light, or show a different perspective on the topic.  People can become comfortable and use the same resources over and over, it’s almost like having a fresh view when it’s a collaboration.
