Community Building Tools

My thought for today involves the five community building tools we will present on in the CI 5330: Learning Communities course. There are three genres of tools in the five tools: Course Management Tools (WebCT and Blackboard), Videoconferencing Tools (WebEx and Breeze), and TappedIn (Teacher Prof Dev Tool).

My probing questions: Is it fair to judge these tools against each other against the necessary ingredients? Should tools just be analysed within their genre?
