So it’s taken me until now to really start digging into Manila 9.5. I’m starting to set up sites for teachers and students for the news school year, and I’m just realizing how much more Manila can do in terms of determining who sees what and how. It’s going to take some time to play, and I’m already trying to enlist some teacher volunteers to push the envelope a bit for me here, but here are some pretty cool aspects right out of the box:
I know I’ve been hoping to do a comparison of the tools out there, and I still mean to as soon as I get a few more days in the week. But with this upgrade, Manila has really given teachers and students a lot more flexibility in the ways they can work and collaborate without the whole world watching. And that has been a concern of many Manila teachers. I’m looking forward to seeing how it’ll perform in practice.
Now, if only they’d build in comment approval…
