    Not Free

    It is disengenuous for the company to try to claim that this product is free. It is not, the charges are merely on the backside of class implementation, i.e., you pay head charges once your students start to enroll in your classes. The only "free" part is the set-up and development phase of your class. MacNN should be more skeptical about what they report. The claim that a company was providing a service that requires expensive network administration was pretty unbelievable and should have thrown up flags for a serious news reporter. Consumers usually aren't as gullible as jounalists, so the company shouldn't insult them by using tricky phrasing advertising, it is demeaning to potential customers and reflects poorly on the product.

    I, as well as another poster here, have not been able to get the online registration to function. It produces a TomCat error.

    It is however an exciting concept, one that could be expanded further in a number of different ways. It's the type of thing I would love to be involved in, (except that, as near as I can tell, they're Canadian, so I'd need a hard-to-get permit to work up there). I wish the company the best.
