Good question Harold

Online community ethics

Harold asks a good question, and I've tried to use the obvious answer to guide my practice since 2006. While I don't go as far as not setting up and offering spaces like Facebook for people to engage in courses and other activities I facilitate, I certainly don't make such places the primary channel of information. Wikiversity is my primary, periodicaly copied into blogger, that automatically feeds through to email lists, twitter and Facebook. All of them offer that scale of userbase that enhance the probability of people connecting and hopefully networking their learning, but where people choose to then engage is up to them.
