I think it's a great idea! Catch them where they are, you wily professor!

I'll keep you updated on how it's working!

I'll be watching for your updates, as this is something I could see doing both with high-school and college students. I plan on looking at the merits of another personal profile vs a fan page or separate pages for each class--not sure what the relative advantages would be for each.

Setting up a separate group within the FB page seems the way to go. I created a new account for my students, but then had the problem of being exposed to their non-stop status updates and photo posts, etc. Whew! So I created two separate discussion groups within the main page and this way students can go directly there.

We'll see how it goes! Some of the students are really taking to it; others are still hesitant.
