Wikis are a great way of enabling collaboration between students. A wiki is essentially a web page that can be edited by all those with access. Moodle has a built-in wiki tool, and there are many others available.
Google offers a suite of cloud-based applications that support online collaboration with spreadsheets, presentations, documents, and more.
Other Collaboration Tools
