Addition to my former post ... 

Sharing work can be done on Google Apps. Edmodo is a watered down LMS and a closed environment with a variety of ways to share primarily discussion forum (but, I'm not totally familiar with all the options in there), ePals allows for exchanges between the "pals," but the classes using it have used Google Apps/Drive for sharing things like video.

I have a 1st-3rd grade team that is interested in making global connections, but I'm struggling to find the best platform for this.

The City School students have some topics they want to cover with different classes from around the world. They'd like multimedia responses that can be hosted someplace for others to view. So, they want synchronous communication throughout the project, but they would like to have an asynchronous meeting to wrap it up.

I have some ideas, but I want to hear what suggestions you have.
