Good list of different collaborative board. Another great one that I use (in beta now) is mural.ly The students loved it and they worked in groups to collaborate on an idea. An example is on my blog thesocialworkpad.wordpress.com and you can see more great tools on my twitter page socialworkpad.

Thank you for sharing these sticky note apps.

Have you checked out the Text widget in http://www.Wordpress.com?

It is truly powerful. One can create a notice board and then post comments, updates links, pictures.

Thank you,
Dan

Thanks very much for sharing this list. I hope you will also consider Teamput (http://www.teamput.com).
With Teamput, students can gather their ideas on their own canvas and then drag their ideas to a side-by-side shared canvas.

I developed Teamput to improve inclusion in online idea generation. It’s amazing what a few minutes of individual idea generation can do to improve engagement and inclusion!

All the best,
