Trying out ELGG

Posted on July 10th, by George Veletsianos in sharing. 3 comments

I am teaching an online course starting on Monday and I am using the ELGG social networking platform as the tool through which I will run the course. I’ve used ning, pbworks, and wordpress (and yes, even Moodle… and WebCT and Blackboard) to run courses in the past, but I am really excited about using ELGG because I don’t have to hack together various tools to offer a diverse social learning experience for my students. Judging from past experience and other users, the platform is promising and will deliver quite a lot! @roycekimmons and the people at UT’s IDEA Studio deserve a public thank you as well, as they had to tweak the installation and hack various plugins to fit our needs. More experiences with ELGG will be shared in due course!

  1. I registered to use ELGG once NING shifted away from free services. I haven’t used it yet…

    I look forward to your reports.

  2. Hi! I would love to hear your experiences with Elgg. We work developing Elgg and we are modifing some usability issues, it would be great to have some feedback from you in order to work on that matters. I think only the ones that get to know the tool can help to modify it!
    Best Wishes!
