Getting Together On Going On

  December 7th, 2011

I just came across this new social network, designed specifically for students and teachers, for interacting “after class’.

and an interview with the networks creator, ceo Jon Corshen.

Enjoy!

  1. Interesting site, Beverly. I know that one of the complaints about using an LMS is that the space disappears for the students as soon as the course is over. For those who want to continue in a community to share ideas, this would certainly be one idea. Thanks for sharing!

  2. That’s what I’ve heard also. I met someone that works for Concordia in Portland who graduated from OSU Art Dept in Graphic Design today, and she was sharing with me how important it’s been for her to remain connected to the same group of students she had been in classes with. Although they didn’t have a facebook page to share while in school, still you can see what a positive difference it makes on students to have a connection that continues after they’ve graduated. I know from my own experience how important it has been for me to have an ongoing connection both here and with alum and faculty in Chicago. It’s very encouraging as well as useful for critical feedback whenever I need it.
