***** To join INSNA, visit ***** Hi all,

I'm revamping my social network's course (12 weeks, undergraduate, final year) and would like to include more software exercises to give students a taste of the major social network software: UCINET/Netdraw/Pajek/Gelphi/+possibly some ERGM software.

Can I ask for suggestions for:

1. Written exercises that walk students through important functions of one or more pieces of social network software.
2. Interesting/engaging/relevant datasets for students to use with this software.

I will collate the responses and repost them to the list.

Thanks in advance,


"Neither slave nor master be."
