Edublogs for Blogging

June 5, 2008

Edublogs (http://edublogs.org/) is my recommendation for teacher and student blogging. It meets the standards put forth here and here. not anymore, now using 21 classesedublogs

This is a free service! It allows teachers to create blogs for students quite easily, although email accounts are needed. They do offer a nice work around for this using a gmail trick. Teachers create their own account and then make accounts for students. Teachers have the option make theirselves as administrator of student accounts, which I like as it will ensure inappropriate content can be removed as needed. Unfortunately entire blogs cannot be kept private, but each post can be made private. There is a bit of advertising on the sites, but not to an intrusive degree.

The tool itself is incredibly powerful. It is built on WordPress, which is a well known professional blogging platform.
