"Rumor has it that Pearson Learning is the business that is going to sponsor the Ning ed. groups that have memberships of 150 or less. I have a few groups in place for my school- one for each of our School Improvement Plan Action Teams, all of which…"
"Early word from Ning in their announcements was that you could pay for longer periods of time, but still only by credit card (PayPal?). I did tell them about the need for purchase orders, but I don't have any idea how much of a priority this is…"

"I'm disappointed, even with the free Ning mini for educators. Without groups and some of the other features, the Ning mini is useless. It's basically just a blog/wiki which I can create for free any place else. I am also concerned that…"
"The sponsored free ning network will look and act quite differently from the free network we get now- no video uploads (videos can be embedded from a different source, such as youtube or teachertube), no groups, no audio file uploads, and a limit of…"
