I want to thank you for the prompt attention you paid to my request for membership. You facilitated the registration process and were very supportive through the NING password technical difficulty. I anticipate a great experience here in the EDU PLN.
Thomas - regarding the potential move away from Ning...I can whip up a Joomla! site with a discussion forum that should do the trick. We can have individual profiles a la LinkedIn, link to slideshare, videos or other content that educators want to post/share! Let me know....Bhupesh
Thanks professor! I've also been engaging more and more on Twitter. I'm not following over 800 educators, and I started following so many people today they had to cut me off. and it's only fifteen minutes in! I look forward to learning all sorts of things between Twitter, MethodsMatters and here. I never knew how much information was at my fingertips!
