Just today I discovered my college has a Moodle - a great open source VLE, that's just been sitting there unused for a whole year! I'm going to use it to host some copyrighted resources that we've bought.

Presently, sixty-five education professionals have signed-up to take part in edonis; forty of whom have joined the Ning network.
In advance of the November start, it would be great if you could answer the questions I've listed on your profile page. I will email the questions to those participating outside of the Ning network and will post their answers here, if they wish.
I am hopeful of attracting more educators over the next four weeks. A couple of ways you can help with… Continue

I'm a newcomer to Ning but am I missing something about the Ning profile? There doesn't seem to be a way to add much detail about yourself or to link to another site (such as my blog
). Any thoughts/suggestions?
