The ReadWriteWeb blog today posted about a web application called Tangler. It allows you to instantly create a forum (that you can make private — just allowing people to participate if they get an invitation — or public) and embed it on a website or blog (or just link to it via a url address). I was able to easily embed it on a Jottit page, which is my favorite application for webpage development.

It seems to me that it’s basically a chatroom that you can easily host on your own site.

It’s another interesting twist on a real-time collaboration tool. I’ve posted about quite a few others before. Using something like Chatmaker seems a bit easier to me, but maybe I’m missing something?

I’ve placed the link on my Teachers Page under Collaboration Sites- Real Time.
