I was looking for an asynchronous whiteboard, because the tool in Blackboard is itnended for use during synchronous sessions.
Online collaborative whiteboard: Skrbl

What we really wanted was a Wiki that could be used as a collaborative mindmap.
I found several reviews of online mindmap tools, and the most useful tool looks like it may be Mindmeister:

Web 2.0 is truly wonderful. Someone has probably invented the application you’re looking for – although it may not work with the others you’d like it to and it may not be free – but it often is free, at least at a basic level! It’s a good business model. You only buy into the tools you actually find useful.
