Digital Applications

Using digital applications for creative design work.


Asana is one of many SaaS (Software as a Service) collaborative digital applications that changes how teams work together. Offering effortless coordination and collaboration between members of a project or multiple projects no matter where they are located. The application enables users to track projects, project tasks, responsibilities and action points with project management tools. Communicate individually, conference and as a group through messages. Share and store documents, mock ups and information easily via upload or drop box.

With Asana, each person knows what they should be doing and why. This provides clarity, transparency, and allows teams to collaborate with less friction and produce great results. Coordination should be as effortless as possible between teams so that people can focus on the tasks at hand without blockades and difficulties communicating ideas and progress.

Organize your tasks for projects into shared lists for your initiatives, meetings, and programs. Easily create tasks for yourself or assign one to a teammate. customize Asana to match your workflows and add structure to any project. Check progress on all the projects you care about in one view. Due dates and calendars ensure every task gets completed on time. Add fields to any project, so you can track exactly what matters most to your organization. Discuss a project’s progress to get on the same page and keep the momentum going. Give tasks a clear owner, so everyone knows who’s responsible. Organize your tasks into shared lists or boards for your initiatives, meetings, and programs.

It is useful in my creative design work to project manage my time and design outcomes, ensure I hit deadlines, remember all of the key tasks in a project. The forum at IDI is similar to the communication element of Asana, allowing communication and collaboration between students and teachers to enhance learning and guidance together.
