No More Ning for Educators

Yesterday, Ning‘s new CEO made the following announcement in the creator‘s forum:

We will phase out our free service. Existing free networks will have the opportunity to either convert to paying for premium services, or transition off of Ning. We will judge ourselves by our ability to enable and power Premium Ning Networks at huge scale. And all of our product development capability will be devoted to making paying Network Creators extremely happy.

I know I’m not the only educator who will have to start looking for a new application to use for classes and professional development.

(Thanks to Laura Nicosia for pointing out the announcement in Facebook.)
