This cloud has been set up as a space to aggregate and discuss web 2.0 sites which are specifically for education.

  • Add links to relevant sites
  • What are the pros and cons of each?

Extra content

I've added links for a number of site, below I indicate which users each site is specifcally targetting:

  • Edmodo - appears to be for both teachers and students
  • Cloudworks - more for teachers
  • SocialLearn - more for learners
  • Academia - for researchers

Just found Academia.edu and it seems a good balance of easy to use and access to content. It found my papers on Scribd and several friends to follow already there. So I hope more people from Cloudworks turn up
