Lore is a facebook type learning platform that provides students with the ability to create a learning profile, communicate with classmates and instructors, share with one another, discuss course work and presentations, join academic communities and groups, and use synchronous messaging to anyone in their network. This app also allows for document uploading, sharing calendars, and it has a gradebook option. The best part about this app and why it would be more beneficial than Facebook is their interaction with classmates and instructors would be free from the embarrassing photos and posts that take place on Facebook.
It seemed very appropriate that I found this technology due to us discussion social networking in this week’s discussion. A technology such as Lore would definitely be advantages to utilize in education because it appears to be more secure and safer than Facebook.
