    The ability to change passwords for student accounts that you have created would be nice. And maybe some stats showing how much each user has been using their account (very useful if you are trying to encourage pupils to use it and want to quickly target who has not, possibly suggesting that they do not understand what they are doing...).

    It's not been a problem yet, but I've got a couple of groups set up with classes and we're building up a decent set of resources and shared information, so I think I could easily argue the benefits if the techy dept. tried to shut us out.

    I'd suggest you really push the teacher console as a way of keeping some control over what pupils use the site for (I point out that any messages they send are time stamped and I can see them all, they don't try after that). It's not that well publicised, I only stumbled on it after looking around a bit...

A Few Questions - View Annotations filter - 62 views

    Another one, if anyone can help...

    How can I set it so that on any given webpage, the pupils can only see comments and notes made by members of the group and not general public comments?

    If I can't do this, then I'm not sure I can use it in my class, if I can't be sure of what information they'll see. Plus, some of the sites (i.e. http://zapatopi.net/treeoctopus/) which I want to annotate with notes for my pupils already have comments on, which although are perfectly clean, clutter the page up for the purposes of using it within a lesson...

    Thanks a lot for this.

    This is a biggie, without it it will just take one nasty comment to render a page full of useful comments and discussion completely useless within a classroom. Even just the ability to delete comments would be enough to rectify this.

    Just to answer my own question, I've just found that a moderator has the ability to delete individual comments on a page if viewing them from the expand button on the bookmark in the groups page (as opposed to actually clicking the bookmark and seeing the stickies on the page).
