Hi Joe

Thanks for the link and I'm glad to see the video is getting around. On the issue of inappropriate content, I think that's always going to be a problem with any Web 2.0 site that allows for user generated content or interaction. I think what we need to do is to hassle the creators while they are still in beta to ensure that there are ground rules for conduct and a means of reporting and banning people who use the sites in an inappropriate way. I think the creators of the sites are keen to get a wider audience and educational use can certainly bring that, so if we let them know what we want then we're more likely to get the service we want. You can email and hassle Xtranormal here: support(at)xtranormal.com They are asking for feedback. So let's tell them what we want. Then we can set our students lose on gret tools like this knowing that they are protected.

Best

Nik

Hi Nik,

Thanks for your comment and for bringing Xtranormal to my attention.

I agree totally with your sentiments and think we should ask makers of Web 2.0 tools like this to think of the potential of opening them up to an educational market, but to do that they have to first ensure that pupils will not come across inappropriate content.
