Enter the Group - Collaborative Project Management

Enter the Group is a new free service offering collaborative project management for groups. Enter the Group features a calendar, messaging, and file sharing for your group members. If you want to keep your project just between friends, you can create a private group. If you want the whole world to see your project, you can make a public group.

To get started you can create an Enter the Group account or sign-in using your Twitter or Facebook credentials. Once you're logged in, click "create new project." Then specify some details about your project and invite others to your group. It really is quite easy to get started.

Applications for Education
Enter the Group could be useful for teachers that work in academic teams to plan interdisciplinary projects. Enter the Group could also be used by students to coordinate the completion of group projects. The fact that users can log-in using Facebook credentials removes the hurdle of having to remember another username and password.
