Comments from some of those who selected Ning as one of their top tools

“I set up a class social network for the fall; much easier to make announcements here than contacting students by email, which they don’t often read; students can submit Voicethread projects here; can carry on class chats and discussions in and out of class; students can get to know each other the first day of class and download their pictures; most are familiar with other social networks, so this is easy for them “Sarah Davis

“the app that allows you to build your own social network. I belong to numerous Ning groups where like-minded people exchange ideas and resources.” Carol Skyring

“Personalized Facebook creator. Develop a social community for your class or organization. It is free and filled with the capacity to build an interactive community” Leigh Zeitz
