I wrote this summer about my plans to use a Ning network in my digital photo class. I created the network, making it private and disabling the ability of members to invite other members. No photo would be posted until I approved it. However, our tech department could not approve it because of the inappropriate networks within Ning. They said that my network was secure enough but there is no way to keep the students away from the inappropriate content in some of the other networks. I understand completely. I wish there was a site that was dedicated to only educational networks. I am really disappointed. I considered inviting the students to participate from home. The only problem is that I have at least two students with no computer access at home. I haven't deleted the network yet. I am still considering my options.
