I’m sitting in Dave Polochanin’s Blogging and eBoards CWP/EASTCONN Saturday Seminar and we’ve been exploring eBoards and Blogs. According to Dave, “eBoards are online message boards. They can and probably should be moderated.” It costs $39/year to rent an eBoard. You can start an eBoard with a free 30-day trial by going to http://www.eboard.com/. You can have up to 10 separate notes for each account. I’m disappointed that it has a subscription fee attached to it since I’m used to all of the free Web 2.0 tools that are out there but I guess they need to support their server space.
I’ve created an eBoard at: http://techtools.eboard.com which I’m using to post links to a variety of technology tools for educations. The “read password” is techtools. Check it out to see whether you think this might be a useful tool for your setting.
I’ve also created a couple of Web pages on the CWP Web site with lots of blogging and eBoards resources at:
I hope you find these helpful!
