Abstract:: Communication has always been essential in the education world. However, the landscape in education today takes on a much more diverse, dynamic structure. Today, there is a greater awareness of the benefits of collaborative learning methods (Stephenson, 2001). The Community/course Action/interaction Management System (CAMS©), described in this paper, is a community/course management system that emphasizes interaction, collaboration and a sense of community. This focus is displayed in most features and functions of CAMS©. The features within CAMS that allow for collaboration will be discussed in detail along with comments from community participants. A summary of the work and how these types of features could be used in other online tools
