Schoology (Facebook-like LMS) Looks Great June 9, 2010

I just learned about Schoology today and I am really excited about the learning potential of this “Facebook-like” learning management system.

Schoology is a learning management system designed to look and act like a social network. Schoology allows teachers to perform routine tasks like recording attendance and grades. Schoology also provides a platform for giving tests and other assignments online. The social networking aspect of Schoology lies in the interface for posting messages to a large community (whole school), to a smaller community (an individual class), or to individual students. The Schoology interface will look very familiar to anyone that has used Facebook.

Pages, Finally! Bring on Comment Moderation. June 7, 2010

Posterous recently added the ability to create static pages.  Great!

That’s one more reason to make Posterous my primary blogging tool.

You can read about this new feature on the Official Posterous and/or at Free Technology for Teachers.

Another feature that I wish Posterous would upgrade is a way to moderate comments.  As of today, you can enable comments or not.

Teachers need a way to review comments before they are posted online.

Hey, Posterous, bring on comment moderation!
