Working with a team virtually to get a project done...

This summer we're experimenting with free web-based software allowing staff to collaborate virtually and at times face to face on projects. The two we've used are Zoho Projects and Basecamp. I'd put out a tweet asking if there were similar products written for the K-12 environment and got back an iPhone/iPod touch app recommendation for SimplyBox, a free browser/collaboration tool. Our teachers are very interested in using these web-based tools for collaborative student projects this fall. We began a partnership with a system in the UK this past year. We'll try to bring the project to product-completion this fall. I'd love to hear from others who've used some of these tools.

I've been using Basecamp for the last 3 years in my web-development business.
In the college program I was in we used Basecamp for most of our group projects.
Its simple software that works well. No complaints there.

I used to use Zoho to share my screen with other people. It was the only software I knew that I could share my Mac screen with other Windows users. Now I use Yuuguu for screen sharing instead of Zoho because it runs much better. Yuuguu requires the person sharing the screen to install yuuguu but the others don't have to install Yuuguu and you can share via a flash player that they watch in their browser.
