I was part of a learning team developing a new course for FEMA. The purpose of the course is to provide the participants with best practices including tools, techniques and a basic roadmap to build capabilities in the use of social media technologies in their own emergency management organizations (State, local, Tribal) in order to further their emergency response missions.
Great experience collaborating in a virtual environment. Our team was spread out all over the country - Seattle, New York, Virginia and Texas. We used BaseCamp to store master files, source materials and to manage the development schedule. Drop Box was used to exchange large files.
