In the course of your academic career, there will be lots of times you need to share information and work together with others. Before the Internet, collaborating was a chore. Thanks to the nominees for Best Collaboration Tool, you can easily share information and work with others using your computer.

Quora

Rather than collaborating with a specific group of people, Quora allows you to collaborate with all kinds of people - whoever uses the site. It works as a question-and-answer service. If you have a question, or know the answer to a question, Quora is a great place for you to find and give some answers. Any and all questions are fair game, from 'What is a hipster?' to 'How old is Raskolnikov in Crime and Punishment?', and if you have a better answer to contribute, you can submit it. Users come together on Quora to find the best answers to your questions.

Quizlet

Let's say you want to form a study group with some friends in your major, but your schedules just don't line up. Rather than scrapping the idea of working together, you can make flashcards and share them amongst yourselves using Quizlet. Whether you've got a midterm or a senior qualifying exam coming up, Quizlet can give you the opportunity to share information with a group. If you're an instructor, you can help your students out by making flashcards for them. While the site has great language-specific tools, you can find ways to study just about any subject using Quizlet.

Dropbox

As an online storage locket, Dropbox can save you the hassle that's created when vital digital information is stored on a single computer. Any Ph.D. student whose laptop has been stolen will know how valuable a service this is. But in addition to keeping your stuff safe and easily accessible from multiple devices, Dropbox allows you to easily share your stored information with others. If you have a paper you'd like to send directly to your advisor, or a set of notes you promised to share with a friend, Dropbox allows you to quickly and easily transfer this information to them, without having to print anything.

All three nominees are highly deserving, but only one can win. Support your favorite, and don't forget to get the word out and vote on Facebook before October 21st!
