I've used Basecamp in the past or a service like Yammer or SocialCast.
However, I've had best results by not trying to manage them or keep them accountable, but by really making them feel included and part of the team, not just a cog in the machine.
Let them know that you appreciate them and that you respect them and that you both have the same goals and you'd be surprised about how amazing they will perform.
No need to crack the whip :)
But that's just my experience.
