Google Wave's source code is open so you could install it on a server and use it for yourself. If you are willing to use a combination of products, here's what's available for you (there are other options, but these will do): TypeWith.me for dicsussions/text document editing (as suggested by 3rdparty) or Campfire if editing other people's post is not ...

As the founder of pligus, I would agree with thunderror and invite everyone here to try it: http://pligus.com The main differences and improvements is that you share your screen and draw or comment an image together. Also, pligus has videoconference, which makes the communication part much better :) I am open for questions and feedbacks. You all can talk ...

Off the top of my head I know of at least three. Search for the following: FedOne PyGoWave Ruby on Sails Update 2010-11-26: Google are rapidly freeing the Wave code in the form of Wave In A Box.

We use DimDim (http://www.dimdim.com) for this at work and with several organizations I belong to. It's an open source (free of cost) option for web meetings that allows you to share your screen, do VOIP and choose presenters. I don't think it lets you do recordings yet - but you can use Skype for that if you want.

One possible solution is to use a combination of Google Apps. Google Site for the public view and wiki Google Code for code sharing, issue tracking, tasks Google Docs for formal documentation Google Groups You can get very creative with this. Good luck.

I don't know if you require a "widget" type appearance, but Windows Live SkyDrive will offer a free 25GB account and allows you to create public folders. When you want to share a file, you can get a direct link (an odd looking thing) or some code (iframe based I believe) that will display an area to download files.

There's a service called Transifex that does the same thing for open source software projects. While it wouldn't work perfectly for an article, I don't see why it cannot be used. I haven't used it extensively, even less in such a scenario, but it might be worth taking a look. A limitation is that it's for open source and public, which you might not want in ...

Above the apps and links given in the thread linked by Alex, here is an excerpt of some information given by Google in the mail they sent to every former user of Google Wave: If you would like to continue using Wave, there are a number of open source projects, including Apache Wave. There is also an open source project called Walkaround that includes ...

PyGoWave is one of the most promising free clones right now. Emphasis on "promising"; the functionality offered is currently pretty basic. It looks like it's easier to set up than Google's Wave offerings, though. Alternatively, if you want something that works now and you mostly used Google Wave as a persistent online chatroom, Anologue is great. It doesn't ...

This might not be what you're looking for, but Google Translate actually lets you suggest a better translation for anything you let it translate, which is kind of a "social feature". They use the gathered data to improve translation quality in future updates of the service.

This seems to be pretty much perfect: http://www.twiddla.com/ It even has support for LaTeX! http://www.skrbl.com/ seems pretty good too as a slightly more basic alternative. Also, here's quite a good list of interactive whiteboard related links, many of them whiteboard webapps: http://www.shambles.net/pages/staff/intwhiteb/

There are many sites for creating flowcharts, and many have collaborative features. E.g: http://www.lovelycharts.com http://creately.com/ You can also look at the various mind-mapping tools. Google docs has nice collaborative features, and it has some ability for creating diagrams. If you really want a wiki, MediaWiki (the open-source script behind ...

I can think of two services that I think do what you ask, Workflowy.com and Checkvist.com. The both of them have hierarchical lists and at least Checkvist has the possibility to collaborate on the editing.

Have you looked into Google Apps? Its calendar sharing features seem to match your requirements. It is syncable with Outlook, accessible from smartphones (either via syncing or a web GUI), and certainly has a calendar GUI. Taking notes from meetings could be done via Google+, or a Google Doc attached to the meeting invitation.

We are a Google Apps Reseller. The two most successful tools we have seen our customers using are: shared Google Spreadsheets and Trello. The spreadsheet might seem crude but it is very flexible in how you set it up, it can be sorted and comments can be inserted. This would be the quickest for you to start using right away. Depending on the complexity and ...

The answer would appear to be: You can't. (At least right now.) From Google Support, regarding the Android app: The Drive app doesn’t currently support viewing and editing comments in Google spreadsheets or Google presentations. Google Support, iOS app: The Drive app doesn’t currently support viewing and editing comments in Google spreadsheets or ...

Google docs can be shared with other people, are reasonably private (so long as they don't share with others) and can support multiple updates I think. Google Wave would have been the ideal place to do this but they aren't continuing support for it (although it looks likely that the main features will be built into google docs at some point soon).

I have used SharePoint to solve that problem but unless you have a team of developers, I would not go down that road. I checked on AlternativeTo and there is a startup called TeamLab that may be just what you need. They even offer a Basecamp import feature. It is offerered as SaaS or Open Source software.

You'd be looking at an online collaboration/whiteboarding tool. At a basic level, even Google Docs will do. You could also look at web services such as GoTo Meeting or WebEx.

You can try Team System Web Access (TSWA). Channel 9 did a video on it that might serve as a good introduction: A first look at Visual Studio Team System Web Access 2010 There is also list of hosting solutions here: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/products/2010-editions/team-foundation-server/hosting

Recently, I started using Remember the Milk. It's a very simple task manager that has resulted in me becoming much more productive in the last month. Sure, I work alone, but I showed RTM to my dad and he has started using it with his team - they all love it. Try it out and see if you like it!

Try Google Moderator. The only drawback I see is that it's not private. If the quesitons you're voting on are not too confidential and the timeframe is rather short I think it should be hard to find your site. But be aware that, as far as I know, it's still publicly visible. Try if you can see the test site I created.

If you are all using Windows, the free Microsoft SharedView will do the trick. One person (in your case the teacher) starts a session and invites others to join. Anybody can then share either their whole screen or just specific windows. It has built-in chat for communicating between participants, and can selectively allow remote control.
