Online collaboration through the use of a secured wiki and other tools. The web collaboration site that has been online since September, 2004. Its stated purpose: to put web collaboration in the hands of people who need it without having to download or install complicated software.
Use the email addresses of the participants in the project to send an invitation. Participants can be created with varying levels of access from Administrator to read-only. Any Administrator can add additional participants. There is even a non-disclosure form in the advanced features.
I was going to recommend a small cooperative note-taking software, but now I have some concerns about it. Originally, I was going to recommend Webnote. In fact, I even set up a page for the Knowplace weekend at http://www.aypwip.org/webnote/knowplace. However, as soon as I did this, I found that someone had already used the program and had left some notes. Now it could be that it is someone from this group, or it could be that it has been used previously at a Knowplace get together. Or it may not matter. What is of import, is that either way, whenever you use this type of collaborative program, care needs to be taken to select a name that is not easily discerned by any passerby. So now, I have set up a new page at http://www.aypwip.org/webnote/knowplace0625 (todays date).

Here is my contribution to this pot-luck. Wink 2 is the latest version of Wink. This version is much more useful because you can now add audio and voice narrations to your slide shows. And it can publish to SWF format for online delivery. Oh, and it is free.
Wink can capture screen shots and actions to create flash based tutorials, without Flash or Captivate. And the presentations are editable.
Download it from http://www.debugmode.com/wink/
I am also keeping a list of free tools for learners and you can access it at http://www2.mtroyal.ca/~rcorbett/edtech/LearnersET.mm.html
