What is a BLOG? "Blog" is the shortened form of "weblog", an online journal/diary. Some schools use it to display their pupils' work. Some teachers use it to share ideas and activities they have done with their groups.

What is a NING? A Ning is an online platform for members to create their own social websites and social networks. Teachers have to sign in and can share ideas and resources. "Ning" derives from the Chinese word for "peace."

2. Many groups of people have set up Nings in order to facilitate the management of a project, for example AVALON (Access to Virtual and Action Learning live ONline), which is a two-year EU-funded project running from January 2009 to December 2010, aiming to explore 3D virtual worlds for language learning: http://avalon-project.ning.com

What is a WIKI? A Wiki is a website where members can create and edit the Web page content. "Wiki" derives from the Hawaiian word "wiki", meaning "quick".
