NINGs in School

I just sent this email out to my staff about the change in NINGs The following announcement is important for those that use NING at school: Pearson recently announced that they would be sponsoring Mini NING's for up to 3 years. If you are using a NING for school purposes, you can apply to have the cost covered by Pearson here . Once you apply for sponsorship Pearson will contact you to allow them access to your NING. Once they review the NING they will let you know if they will sponsor it. If for some reason you are denied, or you do not want to allow Pearson to view your content, you will be required to close your NING or pay a monthly cost to keep it open. How are you handling this? Any complaints from anyone yet on having to let Pearson into the blog, or for having someone sponsor it?
