Moodle or a social network for school?

Posted on January 16, 2009 at 6:16am 3 Comments

I am a high school student and I am comparing and contrasting Moodle and a social network I created on Ning. The Social Network I created is exclusively for students in my high school. I am experimenting to see if it would work better then Moodle. Trying to test to see what students would take to more and what would be more used and effective. If anyone has any feedback to what they think would work best?, If this is a good or bad idea? And what uses could benefit out of both?

Skye- I am a college professor way down in Nashville, TN. However, I am a graduate of Wheaton College... back when it was all girls. So, how is Norton? I didn't get out much while I was there... didn't even realize that there was a high school in Norton... how old is it? Sad, but I haven't been back to Wheaton since I graduated... my husband went there once to check it out. Not too many people here in Nashville have heard of it. Most assume that I graduated from the Wheaton in IL.

Anyway, I am teaching a university course about Web 2.0 technologies and was interested that you seem to be taking a similar course at your high school. What is the name of the course? Is it an elective? I'd love to hear more about it. Any prerequisites?

In our course, we're using Blackboard. The 2.0 technologies that we're using are: LinkedIn, Twitter, SurveyMonkey, Classroom 2.0, Delicious, wikis, YouTube, Fickr, and GoogleDocs. I've heard a lot about both Moodle and Ning, but haven't played with them much.
