I've tried Voxopop when it was called chinswing, but I like the idea of an audio message board: http://www.voxopop.com/ It doesn't have teh visual element, though

In your experience, Joni, do onliine students begin making connections with one another on their own (via email, chats, etc related to assignments), or is this sense of community something you need to facilitate throughout a course?

I think Wallwisher would be nice tool to extend this activity--add to web-based board: http://www.wallwisher.com/
