Hello everyone. 

Do any of you have any project management tools you would recommend? Are any of you using products like Sharepoint or Basecamp? I am especially interested in tools that would help our project teams track their progress well as well as a tool I could use to track our overall progress across several projects. We currently use a series of tools including using Google products like Google Sites and Google Docs. I would love for us to find 1-2 tools maximum but that might be unrealistic :)

Thanks,

I use Asana also and am very happy with it. I’ve heard Zoho is a good tool. Our marketing team uses Basecamp (switched from FunctionPoint). They have mixed feelings about it. I can put you in touch with them if you are interested.

Kelvin, 

Glad you asked as this is an important area for a lot of groups that support online and blended learning. Our group is in the final stages of Jira implementation - and finding it very customizable for our needs - which are for project status tracking, course design workflow, communication among team members regarding courses and content production, as well as project time tracking. We did pilot Zoho Projects and took a look at Basecamp but found them both to be less customizable and more task-oriented than our needs demanded. 

Having previously used Confluence for both documentation and project tracking - I've appreciated all the possibilities Jira brings for gathering data across any number of custom fields and then displaying that data according to each individual or group's needs - by means of filters and dashboards that can display data as charts and graphs or as text, similar to a spreadsheet. It's also helping keep us all on the same page - by helping ensure all current information and communication about a course or its components are in one place. 

I've done a couple presentations on Agile Instructional Design at conferences about this - happy to share a link if anyone would like to message me.

Best,
Clark
