We're experimenting with a Ning site. My post on Ning makes the argument that 'putting a course online' is a goal that's likely to lead to problems and that, instead, we should think about redesigning courses so that, in some ways at least, they're dramatically better than the same topic taught in a traditional campus-bound way. Take a look and try using Ning to engage in a conversation. And let us know what you think of Ning, versus this blog. Thanks!
