How do you go about creating a virtual learning community? One that can be used within the confines of your school across a year level or extended beyond to a national or global community? You can use Ning.
This presentation will show you how you set up such a network and cultivate a learning community. Don't think you can sit back and smell the roses; learning communities require energy, enthusiasm and a willingness to share, learn and grow with your users.

This is how you cite this paper:

Thanks Thu. I'd be very happy to assist you learn the potential of working with Ning. I think ill children could benefit from virtual learning environments. Their teachers from school could join as members and provide them with opportunities to connect with their classmates back at school. If you need any help feel free to contact me at
