Week 5, thing #11

I joined Ning and set up a site for the club that I am hosting at my high school. I was pleased with the way that I could add a lot of personalized information to the new network I had created. I was able to add privacy settings so that only members can view the network. I think this is important to protect the privacy of my students in this area of creepy cyber predators. I was able to add events and photos. I will add the students to the blog. I posted guidlines for the posts by the students and was even able to set it up so that I have to approve new posts before they show up to the rest of the members of the club.

The one thing that was frustrating me is that Ning is using my first name to sign all of my posts and activities and I would prefer to keep it more professional and have them all from "Mrs. Elford" but haven't been able to get that to change. If anyone knows how, please let me know. Thanks. I am looking forward to checking other people's posts to see what 2.0 tools they explored.



  1. thanks for sharing the URLs. As for first name, could you edit your personal settings so that you'd put in your last name or Ms. as your first?

  2. Thank you for the suggestion, I tried that but it didn't change. I guess it is set in stone. Similarly, I also tried to change my name in Facebook. I wanted to add my maiden name so that more of my old friends could find me but I couldn't change that one either.
