We are looking to do a visual card sort with users that are geographically dispersed across the globe. Ideally, we want to find a tool that will allow users to drag and drop things to create their own web page structure.

If you imagine doing a card sort type activity that would allow participants to create their own i-Google type interface and pick various "parts" and place them on their page. In addition, they could then take various "pieces of content" and drop them into those parts. We would like them to do this online in some kind of tool that will capture what they did. Ideally, it could also do some kind of analysis like EZ sort to cluster the commonalities and differences in how people structured their "parts" and "pieces of content."

Does anyone know of a tool that will allow us to virtually "test" people in this way? We are trying to avoid doing a labor-intensive powerpoint type activity...

Thanks for any help or ideas you can provide!
