I expected Ning to close it when they went to pay-to-play. After all, their site says: Deadline for Selecting a Ning Plan Has Passed. We are no longer offering or supporting free Ning Networks. If you haven’t selected a plan for your free Ning Network, you can no longer access the network. To regain access, please visit www.ning.com, sign-in and then click “Select a Plan for your Ning Network.

Today, Ning made a bunch of free apps available for download. I have added five of them (Ning’s limit) to the Internet Time Community to assess how they work. Since the top menu of a Ning community is limited to 14 items, I collapsed some links into sub-categories.

Big news today from Ning: no more free networks (and 40% staff layoffs). Many educators use Ning for creating social networks. But, for Ning, ad revenue has not been able to meet their financial needs. Hosted services are great – as long as you can pull your data out (a significant value to Google’s data liberation project).

The Internet Time Community has been hosted on Ning for a little over three years. I was shocked and saddened when Ning announced that its free service was ending. Lots of non-profits had signed up on Ning. The way Ning handled things left a bad taste in my mouth.

Join the LASI Ning. While MOOCs are sucking all of the oxygen out of the educational technology conversation, significant trends are developing under the radar. One of the most significant trends is around learning analytics. Next week, we ( SoLAR , IEDMS and others) are organizing a Learning Analytics Summer Institute (LASI). A call for attendance was held earlier this year and the event was/is (massively) oversubscribed.

Ning started by giving out spaces for free and there were many other variations on that theme. Tweet When I started blogging, it was one of the few options to share ideas on the Net. There were some utilities like Quicktopic that let you easily make posts and of course we had listservs, bulletin boards and discussions forums that had been around for much longer. After blogs, the next big phenomena were social networks.

It also has two cameras attached: one for scanning the tabletop and through custom image recognition software determine the exact position and rotation of books; one for making high-resolution scans of pages, notes or objects not yet in the Sitterwerk catalogue.

LOL, just look at their Ning migration page ([link] IT’S STILL PROMISING FREE!!!, as an alternative to Ning, so I’d like to get to the bottom of this. A few days ago, I posted on Disservice from GROU.PS, giving me a deadline for upgrading from plan .

note that the platform we used, Ning, began charging for service in 2010, so the resource is no longer available]. As Ning was shutting down its free service, I tried to capture some of the resources we had created, like the Introduction to Social Networking.

There is a ning group for it: LearnTrends Ning Community. And Ning's time converter does not work. There will be some interesting discussions going on in the Ning group based on the presentations. Just a quick reminder that LearnTrends - Corporate Learning Trends and Innovations - starts on Monday. You can find the Schedule of Sessions. Be careful that all times are Pacific Time.

They might not be the same type of community one finds at Slideshare, or Ning, or Amazon, and so on, but there are definitely communities in play in the work world. As I was taking in the keynotes of the Enterprise 2.0

I am noticing a hockey stick-like moment for ning lately - at least in my circles. A full-on ning site designed for: "gov't employee (fed/state/local), public policy student/professor, good gov't organization, gov't contractor with good intentions."

Social Network Examples are Ning and KickApps. I'm debating the value of forum / group / threaded discussion software vs. social network software for a particular situation. It aims at a very broad audience that includes everyone from early adopters to technology laggards.

Over the past few years, I spend part of December going back through my blog to recap a bit of what some of the key things I’ve learned over the course of the year. I’ve been doing this the past few years, for example: Learned about Learning in 2009. And every year I use this as a Big Question – see: Learning 2010. A lot of it is thinking through where my thinking has changed over the course of the year. So here are a few of the things that are a bit different for me.

This is the email I received today: Hi Ning Network Creator! As you may have already heard, we’re going to be making some big changes at Ning over the course of the next two months. As members of the Strategic Relationships team, we wanted to send you a personal introduction and let you know that we’ll be here over the coming months to discuss these company changes with you and help you transition seamlessly into an offering that works for you and your Ning Network.

To sign-up, go to the Ning group I've announced this already - Free - Web 2.0 for Learning Professionals and the response is great already - it looks like we are going to have quite a mix of people involved.

As our Work Literacy Ning site (2008) is in danger of getting bumped off the Net due to Ning’s new pricing policy , I will post some of the key articles here so we don’t lose them. There are several different online social networks, but for our purposes, we’ll focus on the three that tend to be used the most by learning professionals–Facebook, LinkedIn and Ning. As a learning professional, you will want to think of Ning in two ways.

Henry Ford or even David Geffen… feed the machine, keep it running smoothly, pay as little as you can, make as much as you can. Here is Seth Godin being interviewed by Hugh Macleod : In a stable environment, we worship the efficient factory.

However, after the Ning experience, it’s difficult to trust a newcomer that doesn’t have a way for data export. Udemy has launched as a virtual learning academy. I set up an account (fairly painless) and started playing around with their synchronous classroom tool. First impression – nothing very new here, but the tools work well. If teachers start to use Udemy, lock-in will eventually become the economic value point for the company.

And switching again, the cover story in the current Fast Company is about ning. Ning’s software is another agile dancing bear. Essentially, a community-in-a-box, Ning is a snap to set up.

Using SharePoint for Event Planning & Organizing Just like we used a Wiki one year and Ning another to support the online conference LearnTrends , SharePoint can be used to manage all types of events, especially internal events. I've been having fabulous conversations about using SharePoint.

Just yesterday (after having joined this ning as my first ning ever) I found a ning on the topic of Moodle, and I posted my question there. Yesterday I created a screen cast on LinkedIn for Finding Expertise. Today, I saw a post on our Free - Web 2.0 for Learning Professionals where someone said: I am currently trying to find a SME experienced with Moodle (a CMS/LMS) and WizIQ (synchronous web class technology).

— @courosa “ Ning Exposed – Tech Company Scams its Clients . Is Ning a scam? There’s a theory that Ning’s actions are part of a carefully planned scam to make the company the next MySpace or Facebook. This reminds me how important it is to own your data , and the following show two open source options to Ning’s Software as a Service (SaaS) platform: @elggdotcom “there is a hosted version of Elgg coming in May.

The Ning site it was hosted on had changed its terms of service so I posted a copy of an Introduction to Social Networking (June) on this site. It got more attention here than on the Ning site.

This weekend I noticed a tweet from Alec Couros about some issues with the Ning social networking platform. That post is over a year old but from the comments as late as last fall, there seem to be ongoing issues on how Ning treats its customers, users and their data. While Ning may be free, it is not open source, and the company can make changes at will, just like Facebook, Google or Twitter may do. With Ning, Facebook and many others, there is no such export function.

Asynchronous Discussion I personally have found that Ning works great as a tool for all sorts of different needs. Creating a new Ning network is very easy and it gives you a lot of what you would want / need as a work team.

you could also say ‘a wordpress.com project, a moodle hosted project or a ning project if you don’t care about controlling your data… which I do… but you may not). I would add Elgg to mix if there is an interest in the functionality of Ning, but with the advantage of open source. Dave Cormier has written a great article on selecting a content management system (CMS). Dave discusses three platforms, all of which I have used - WordPress , Moodle , Drupal.

I’m continuing on my theme of capturing what we learned during our Work Literacy online workshop in 2008, before Ning pulls the plug on us. Previous posts have discussed several aspects of what we learned and I’d like to review some of the summative commentary. What questions still linger? Jason Willensky – “Will we be forced to chase hot tools and social platforms to stay competitive… is this an ever-expanding universe of tech goodies?

As we are wrapping up the week for Learn Trends , one of the questions we faced was what to do with the Ning community that sprung up to support the conference. Large, active Ning community hosted by Elliot Masie with monthly questions that spark discussions. Chief Learning Officer Network - Fairly active Ning community that has broad range of topics.

Also, if you are interested in future conferences, please go sign up on the Learn Trends Ning Group. We've just seen an interesting experience with Jay Cross having pulled together a 24 hour, worldwide discussion on the future of learning at Learn Trends. You can find some of the recordings here. There's a discussion thread with feedback, and you can read some of Jay's thoughts on doing this. It had very good attendance and the quality of people was very high.

If you are interested in attending, go to the Learn Trends Ning Site and sign-up. At the end of our Learn Trends conference last year, one of the comments was that we needed to do smaller versions in an on-going basis. Well we are going to start exactly that.
