Does anyone know of a good website platform for students that will allow 2 different blogs on the same site? Currently, I'm using Weebly, which allows this, but it's very buggy and won't allow RSS for most of my student's blogs.
I can't set up RSS feeds for most of my kids. I'm thinking about Blogger, but I would like an easy platform that can handle two different blogs simultaneously. Blogger can only handle one blog with additional pages that are designed to be more static.

In the past, students have blogged about sports stars personal lives, government policy, ways to spend time with your family, which animals would make good pets, etc.
It's like this ning but free and you can create subgroups, if you have multiple classes, with independent forum, calendar, photos, video and wall. I haven't used the blog feature, but it looks like any member can create their own blog, with independent feed.

To reduce education and learning to an accumulation of facts devoid from any contextual influence is just simply naive.…See More
