  • Hello: I currently work with several teachers who assign student portfolios. We use WordPress.com. This works fine, but we’d like more security and we’re thinking of hosting the software ourselves. I’m wondering if students were to have accounts, if those blogs could be easily controlled or even set up by teachers. Here’s a sample of some portfolios that were done recently: http://delicious.com/cateach/PortfolioExamples
    Thanks,

  • To host this kind of stuff you’ll need wordpressMU.
    http://mu.wordpress.org

    Or just take a look at edublogs.org – powered by wordpress and made specifically for teachers and students.

    Thanks for the reply. I’ve played around with Edublogs. It’s ok, but I’d like to offer this to teachers ad free off my server, so I might go with WordPress.org.

    WordPress MU sounds like it’d work well for you. It will basically give you a setup like WordPress.com on your own server. You can set teachers as “site admins”, so they have access to manage all the blogs on the installation and set students up on each of their individual blogs.
