My richest online experience so far combined old and new technologies: list-serves, conference calls, Skype, face book, wiki, and two face to face meetings.
It's a lot of work and probably works best with co-facilitators who know the advantages and limits of each segment.

Key is how tools are being applied
The challenge here is that many tools support many different use cases. They may be a good match for some engagement needs but not for others. To make things even more complicated, successful engagement depends on a human component (to varying degrees). A well-planned, well-designed and well-run process that relies on a crappy tool may be hugely more successful than a poorly-run process using a tool that should, in theory, be a great match for the engagement need at hand.
