Maybe one possibility would be to use a computer conferencing
system, what allows to run public conferences, but also emails.

The Open University where I do my MBA supports with such a
system their distance studies - and the virtual discussion
allows to overcome the isolation and to motivate people.

There are software solutions that may be not too expensive,
and that may not need an expensive host (for example, Ashmount
has developed a new product, named Virtual Access, that could
be used for that purpose).
