Thanks for the great suggestions and the quick response, Derrick. I will check them out. Thanks also for the feedback on our contributions to the Ning.

Derrick, our group is looking at different ways of sharing our learning.  We are putting together an ebook but are wondering if there are some other platforms out there that you might recommend for integrating text, photos and videos.  I thought you might have some suggestions for us:)  Cathy
