Managing Collaboration

One of the projects that I am working on is a collaborative effort with scholars at another university–Jennifer Guiliano and Trevor Muñoz at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland. Because there are over a dozen people (located in various places) involved in the project, we have turned to the project management tool Basecamp to help organize our discussions and work plans.

Thus far it has proven to be a valuable tool to keep project participants on the same page, though I am definitely interested in methods or tools used by fellow project managers in the Digital Humanities.
