"I have found a few more bugs in grou.ps (still in beta, still quite new), but, overall, I would agree that it does (or hopes to eventually do) at least as much as ning."

Juan Pablo Velez Barragan replied to Brad Flickinger's discussion Teaching with iPads
"For teaching purposes, do you think there is a significant benefit over an IPod touch? Do you find that the "one application at a time" feature keeps students focused, or hinders multi-media work and multitasking?"
