Yaptime : The best Place to Share , Organize , and Collaborate Using Private Groups .

Posted in Labels: , ,

Yaptime is a great web2.0 tool . It is prefect for creating private groups `where only invited members can share and plan in private`. As Robert Kapela has said , It is very hard now to find a social network that offers reasonable measures of privacy and even Facebook has grown so much impersonal to the point that you risk the disclosure of your private data there . Yaptime has been created with this mind , allowing people to share and collaborate in private groups freely and with no privacy infringement . As educators , Privacy counts a lot and  Yaptime is one of the safest place we really need for our students .
