Most well designed web-based course delivery tools have common features such as electronic mail, calendar, chat rooms, and bulletin boards, to name a few. In this paper, the authors describe how these and other tools can be used to facilitate communication among members of committees and among faculty members in departments and colleges. The advantages of using such tools include saving face-to-face meeting time and reduced use of paper products. Some of the disadvantages include the fact that technology does fail, and time is initially needed to train people to use the web-based communication tools.
