Collaborative Software on the Internet

Tools and Ideas

 

This site was put together Dec. 2000.  I'll add more sites as I find them.  It isn't meant to be a directory of sites, rather a site to give you examples of the types of software that is available. Most of them are free or inexpensive and I chose those that could be used in a learning environment.
