Another free learning management/secure social networking site for classrooms is Schoology. I recently ran across their site; and although I’ve had no experience with them I think they are worth consideration for those of you trying to find an safe way to incorporate social networking into your classroom environment.
Here is an exerpt from their site:
- Schoology provides an enterprise level learning management system and configurable social network. Instructors and students can easily create, share, and manage academic material through a social networking interface. By incorporating learning management tools into a social environment, Schoology provides a means for teachers, students, parents, and administrators to seamlessly communicate and collaborate on academic issues.
