Group Discussions

 

 

Description

Allows a group of people to participate in a discussion group using email messages.  Users reply to the group email and the message is sent to the entire group.  Similar to listservs. 

 

Uses and Potential Benefits

Group discussions are an easy way for individuals to communicate with a large group on an ongoing basis.   This can be through a web interface or regular emails.  Useful for collaboration and team or group communication. Example: a foundation might set up a group discussion for its grantees and external experts to discuss topics relevant to their work.
