Trello Why are they useful for VET? Trello offers many important project-related benefits for teachers and students in VET. Firstly, Trello is easy to use and fully customisable. The Trello card system can be used as a formal/ informal means of communication on homework assignments or projects provide links to course notes and multi-media educational material, assign peer-to-peer communication and collaboration and provide real-time updates on live seminars or project-tasks. Trello provides effective project management of teaching and learning requirements, with the ability to assign and create tasks, start discussions, add attachments and email/ text alerts and notifications. Files can be added from Dropbox, OneDrive or Google Drive. Students can benefit from real-time adjustments to projects when working collaboratively and across geographies on projects. Trello has a powerful search, filtering and labelling capability, facilitating management and negotiation of a complex and extensive curriculum of course materials, projects and deadlines. Such facilities and features are particularly useful for longer programmes, theses, on-job assignments, projects etc. Trello is free for its basic service and has an app on iPhone and Android for mobile users. The web-version supports all major browsers and can be accessed from all standard electronic devices. The business version of Trello includes features such as administrative controls, filter boards, added security features and connection to services in Salesforce, Evernote, and Google Drive etc. Trello is real-time, for example, when a card is added, removed or moved on a board, it simultaneously moves on all other boards without end-users having to refresh or re-open tabs after screen lock-downs or power-outage. Trello keeps data secure and private through a secure SSL/ HTTPS connection and encryption technology system. Because the vendor provides off-site storage of information, teachers and students are at less risk of data loss and corruption.
