More About Online Collaboration Using Basecamp

Basecamp is an online service that allows educators to collaboration online. BaseCamp offers services that include the following:

  • Messaging (replacing face-to-face talking)
  • Milestones (project deadlines for individuals and team members)
  • To Do (each person can have multiple to-do lists to keep them on track while working toward a milestone)
  • Writeboards (the online equivalent of a flipchart and somewhat like a series of single wiki pages, where multiple people can remotely edit the same page)
  • Time (if time needs to be monitored)
  • Files (a useful space to save copies of all files needed by the team, much like a reference library)
