Elgg – social network software for education

Steve O’Hear has posted two linked articles, the first looking at Web technologies and education in general, the second concentrating on Elgg. Having looked at different tools, I’m keen to start to use Elgg with the MSc eLearning students, rather than Blogspot. We had hoped to set up our own server, though that might not happen, however, I’m coming round to the idea that the main Elgg site might actually be better, as it will allow the students to interact with far more people than just their peers. Elgg Spaces looks promising, though I’m not quite sure how it will work.
