Hi Janet, I have twice typed a lengthy response to a forum, and when I am ready to post it, it has disappeared.  I must be doing something wrong, but for this to happen twice is an odd coincidence.  I wish that the site saved a draft, or that there was a back button so that I could retrieve my response.  : (

Thanks, Janet. A couple of my colleagues and a couple of students are slated to sign up and take the site for a test drive so that we can better explain what it is and how it works. So appreciate the warm welcome.

Hi Janet,

I am wondering if it is possible to add a 'class' where my students would be able to access curriculum as a group?

Thanks for the great session at the Transition Conference last week. I look forward to using the material you've created even if it isn't until next year!

Hello Janet, I signed up for your network in response to the owner of the recent profile article one of your bloggers wrote about me on entrepreneurs. 

I may have one or two opportunities coming available soon that you not require physical proximity (commission account managers) and one that would require physical proximity in St. Cloud Minnesota. Do you have a means by which employers can share those opportunities with your users?

Do you have a typical user base? Are they all disabled in some way? I.e. The association with ADA?
