Hi All,

After receiving this email, Jackie Hotchkiss, my new site coordinator
found a
way for our sites to become part of a community that is *private* and
has the capacity for: a) discussion boards, b) blogs, c) videos,
e) pictures, f) communication [comment boards], and the capacity
for individual groups (limited to a specific site as well as for
groups. This looks like a great tool for collaboration/networrking
across sites. Because it is secure (only members have access), we
are planning on using this for next year as part of our program.

  Ning (www.ning.com) is the name of the social network that we're
on using. It requires a master administrator but is very simple to
set up,
easy to change security levels, appearance, and over all layout of
the page--
the different tools (blogs, videos, etc.) are selected so that each
site is easily
designed based on individual needs.

I'm sending this info because YouTube is not secure and does not
allow for communication.
On the other hand, we could use YouTube, etc. to share those things we
think can broaden awareness of our program----

Let me know what you think---who knows we may be able to collaborate
easily with this program---and it's free!

Hope you all are having a great June!
