I have recently created two social networks for my classes (I teach 2nd and 4th grade math, science, and social studies). Aside from the normal features (events, forums, etc.), would you recommend any other features that would help with parent communication?
I am using the networks for parents to ask me questions, stay current on classroom events, get homework help (through podcasts or video), and communicate with other parents from the class.
Also, this leads me to a "stupid" question - how and where does one add podcasts to a Ning site?
