I'm not looking to gather information from other people there (have so many other places where I already do that). ” Nick Peackey Nick Peackey

Certainly in the UK, [….] it would be really easy to set up a Yammer account for students and staff to collaborate with each other in a closed-off environment. So, if Twitter seems somewhat too open for comfort, perhaps Yammer is the answer. ” Terry Freedman
