I thought I was on post overload this week after all the jam posts and replies and I would skip posting here, but I have been thinking about my experience in the Ning. I liked the threaded discussions--something that blogger doesn't really do since even comments on blogger are just one big list. I have the sense that the Ning allows for ongoing conversations in a way blogger does not, yet on the other hand I am curious about what students can do in terms of control because the Ning felt a lot more teacher-controlled than blogger. Can members create new discussion threads by default or do you have to enable them? If the latter, I would like to hear from Ning users here what they have chosen to do and how it has worked for them.
