Ding Dong is Ning Dead?

May 4, 2010

If you’re an educator using Ning, like me, you’re probably disappointed to hear the news that Ning has decided to end its free service. I first discovered and began sharing Ning with teachers in the 08-09 school and it took some time for me to sell it.  This year many teachers have incorporated Ning in their classrooms, just in time for the free service to end.

An ominous e-mail broke the news of “new and exciting changes” coming to Ning in July. Generally it’s a bargain, $2.95 per month or $19.95 for a year, but many teachers have already expressed their concern for having to pay to use Ning. I just wish there was a way they would consider making Ning free for educators…  but wait! What’s this? There’s more.

Good News!! After exploring Ning’s site I discovered that “A major educational company has offered to sponsor Ning Mini Networks for educators globally in primary and secondary education. More details to come soon!”

Could my wish really come true?
