Tips for facilitators in Ning

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

I've been exploring Ning a little further than I did and compared it to other forums like socialgo, collectivex and grou.ps. Gro.ups is open source, has a lot of similar functionalities to ning (and more- you can upload files easily) and is also without advertisements (for free!).

The Internet Time Community has been hosted on Ning for a little over three years. I was shocked and saddened when Ning announced that its free service was ending. Lots of non-profits had signed up on Ning. The way Ning handled things left a bad taste in my mouth.

Tony Karrer

I was hoping that Ning was going to come out with a inexpensive plan that would support the different Ning sites that I have a hand in. They do have Ning Mini at $3/mo, but it only allows 150 members. That’s not going to work for: LearnTrends LA CTO Forum Work Literacy I’ve read a bit about alternatives, but each will require a bit of work. Harold Jarche is trying to figure it out for the Work Literacy site.

Ning - or other paid online platforms I hesitated whether Ning had to be included in the list because it is not a free tool.

Build Your Own Twitter

Bottom-Line Performance

I came across a great new service, similar to Ning. ShoutEm allows you build a public or private microblog network, that you can connect to your Facebook account, a Ning site, or even Twitter. It allows you to create your own microblog. Basically, it’s a “build your own&# Twitter. Now you have 140 characters to craft your own community. And, of course, it’s free. This would be a great tool for groups focused on one topic.
