We would like to make more use of the communities feature. We have a number of committees that would like to use as a place to hold information and discussions. We have been using Basecamp but would rather keep it in one place. Difficult to make the move without the notifications feature. Discussions go unanswered in the itslearning community because no one knows someone has posted something. Items are often not reviewed because no one knows that a new item was posted. Basecamp sends an email notification when things are added, thus making the committee more effective. With all that teachers and students have to do, it is daunting to remember to check each community regularly, "in case," someone made a change or added to a discussion.
