How-do everyone?

This is a great idea! a little MyS*ace for the teaching and learning crowd! ... and timely too! I'm teaching a course called, "Emerging Technology in Education" next quarter and plan to use this as a bouncing pad with my graduate students. Like I said in my profile, I'm a Research Associate for the Center for Electronic Studying, a division of The Center for Advanced Technology in Education at the University of Oregon, but they also - once in a while - let me teach a class or two.

My interests are in preparing students for a future of rapid transformation (using critical thinking, creative problem solving, and futures learning scenarios), using the development of Multi-User Virtual Environments (like Second Life, River City, or There), Web 2.0 stuff of all kinds (see http://del.icio.us/Jonathon_Richter/web2.0 ), in developing Electronic Portfolios, and Computer-based study strategies (see http://cbss.uoregon.edu/ ).

Hope to be engaged and enlightened by you all! :)

hi Jonathon,
I thought about using Ning as a learning platform for my online courses too, but finally decided to try it with ELGG, an ePortfolio Open Source software. The disadvantage is that you will need your own server to run it...
Here's the link to ELGG: http://elgg.org
