Beyond the Bricks - Networking Ning Thing

What if we were creating colleges today? Would we create geographically-separated oases that compete more than they collaborate? Or, would we look for ways to link resources and people together to collaborate and most efficiently provide services?

Social networking is changing the way we engage one another. Many of us are familiar with MySpace and Facebook and LinkedIn, but what about Ning? This is a very robust, free resource that promotes collaboration.

The New Century Learning Consortium Ning linked above is an example of how we might begin working together.
