Released last week at ISTE 2011, the new My Big Campus 2.0 collaborative learning platform from Lightspeed Systems has more features and a new design, plus a new free standalone version, available to all educators.

Previously available only as an integrated feature of the company's Web Filter, My Big Campus now offers all educators a safe place for class collaboration and professional learning networks.

Users of the standalone solution will be able to create groups for classes, clubs, projects, or learning networks; and all members will be able to chat, collaborate, blog, share resources, manage events, store files and assignments, and more. All activity on My Big Campus is monitored; all uploaded files are scanned for viruses and skin-tone analysis; and everything is reported upon, making the platform a CIPA-compliant solution for online learning in schools.
