How-to: Getting Started with EduBlogs

How-to, Online Tools | No Comments »

EdublogsEdublogs (powered by a multi-user version of WordPress) is a completely free blogging platform targeted towards teachers, students, researchers, professors, librarians, administrators and anyone and everyone else involved in education. With each account, you receive 20MB of free upload space (easily extended to 5 GB as a Supporter) and a heap of great features.

On a larger scale, schools and universities looking to create, manage and control blogs at their own domain, can do so with Edublogs Campus, an additional paid offering from the people at Edublogs.

Commentary: For anyone that has worked with WordPress, Edublogs is really no different. The biggest benefit of Edublogs is the education-related tips and support that the community provides through their blog and forum at The Edublogger.
