  • Thank you for sharing this innovation! I use a web-platform in my college classes but still find the 'silo' effect a big challenge. Your ideas shared will help me achieve the goal of creating community in my classes, even in my class with over 60 students. :) Leslie

  • The Slideshare full screen button does not work on Ning Networks. I've sent an email to Ning developpers about it.

  • This is a great presentation and it is interesting how many academics are using Ning to build socialisation in college courses. I've been using Ning in the same way and agree with the comments you make at the beginning of the presentation
