EDUblogs- Manage Student & Teacher Blogs

A new(ish) platform from the folks at WordPress, EduBlog is an easy to use hosted WordPress blog with additional features suited for Teacher/Student/Parent management.

With an eye on security, Edublog gives educators a way to quickly setup a WordPress based blog an begin to interact with their students.

Once you go through the signup process, you are basically in the backend of a WordPress site. Not much is different other than a My Class tab. However, you can’t really add a class until you upgrade to the paid Edublog Pro version.

 

 


THE GOOD /

  • Great place focused on people in the education space
  • Strong privacy controls in place for both the teacher, student and parent
  • Nice, clean interface
  • Addresses all levels of education K-12 and higher ed

THE BAD /

  • Site is on edublog.com subdomain
  • Free version is limited


 

That’s a shame as a lot of educators would really benefit from being able to post class work and interact with their students. Everything new or neat about Edublogs is only available via the Pro version.

Pro versions start at $3.33/mo (with year contract – $39.95) and are $7.95 on a month to month basis. Being the son of two teachers, I know that, while it may not be a hardship, it is an expense that would come out of their own pocket.

 

 

 

 

With the free version, you can join a class (add a class that is in the system) and invite students.

The Pro version adds the ability to create your own class.

Additionally, the Pro version will allow visitors to subscribe by emails to get notifications of all new posts.
