    this website http://www.freeonlineprojectmanagement.org/ has been created to help and share the free online project management software, tools, courses and templates. It should be used both in your “real world” job and in your online job.

    You will find this site is focused on new web based tools for collaboration while still maintaining and teaching the base project management skills.
