I work in a small office inside a University and I'm in charge of the physical documents for the students like guides, questionnaire and so on. We have 10-15 students a year that work with us to get some money and to help us preparing these documents, help other students, etc.
The previous director of the office was terrible with anything computer-related so we ended up working on paper for every change we had to make, piling tons of useless sheet and going crazy when we had to find the last version of something.
Moreover, having a different intern everyday it was literally impossible to track the changes on anything.
So, I'm here now looking for a middle ground, and I was thinking for something like a git workflow for non-programmers.
I create the base document, say student guide 2015-16.doc, and daily the student working on it will submit a pull request which I accept totally or partially and can review and view previous versions.
I can't use cygwin and ask people to type git commands in a shell (this is not a computer science university), therefore I was wondering if there's something like a plugin for Word working invisibly behind the scenes.
