I know that several CofC Faculty became quite accomplished Ning users only to be cut off when Ning decided to cancel their free service. Well I just ran across a potential substitute called Toonti. It offers many of the same features offered by Ning and it worth checking out. I was never a big Ning user so I haven’t tested Toonti out very thoroughly so I can’t attest to how similar it is. Take a look and let me know what you think. Is it as good a Ning? For those of you who try it I look forward to reading your comments here!
