Basecamp could be the project management system you’ve been looking for

Advising multiple publications is a difficult task, and getting all the students on the same page is a challenge.  With Basecamp’s free-for-educators system, the adviser and student journalists get a professional-level management system that works on PC, Mac, Android, iPhone and iPad.  It provides a chat system, room for multiple teams, and a powerful to-do system with calendar integration. Check out in this video how we have just begun to use it for our program in Omaha, Nebraska.
