However, when you post to a group, these actions appear to come from you as an individual. If you post or take other actions on a page you won it will appear to come from to come from the page. Groups can be kept closed.
  • Notes are like blogs. Publish thoughts about class content. If you like, you can tag students in the notes.
  • Blogs are much longer than tweets. It is interactive.
  • Twitter has a PM function although it is mainly used for public postings. Edmodo is a newer site that does the same thing as twitter.
