I recently came across a site called Enter The Group. It’s a free site that allows you to create private or public classroom webpages that have great features for students and faculty in regards to project management and collaboration. What’s cool about Enter The Group is that you can upload assignments, use a blog, create discussion boards, add events on a classroom calendar, conduct polls, and you can sign in using a Google account or Facebook. It also provides messaging. It’s a free site and if you are familiar with sorting and organizing your site in Blackboard, this layout will be familiar to you. You can also use this if you are teaching a course where a person is not affiliated with a University but would also like to participate in the course. This site is also great for organizations to collaborate.
