Nicenet.org is a very simple online classroom tool with a more formal feel than Edmodo. It has the following features:
- accessible from any computer with an internet connection
- forum based activites allow students and teachers to do peer editing or respond to questions so that everyone can read all responses.
- Allows teacher to post links. Teacher may allow students to as well if desired.
- Allows teacher to post documents for download
- Allows you to post schedules of due dates
- Provides private messaging service.
- Requires no email for registration. Teacher provides a key that students enter.
- Requires students to put in name for identification, allowing teacher to keep track of who is doing what.
- Because the site is not visually “heavy” with images, ads and media, it loads quickly and is almost never down.
