Besides WordPress, blogspot, teachers can use wiki, ning, podcast and several other tools to enhance their teaching. For teachers who want to create & manage student & teacher blogs, quickly customize designs and include videos, photos & podcasts – try some tools at edublogs.org; it’s safe, easy and secure.
Basically, edublogs.org uses WordPress engine to customize the site for teachers’ needs. If you are familiar with WordPress engine, you should be able to use the tools in edublogs.org. I have been using WordPress.com for my own course since 2009. My latest teaching blog is http://skbi6133c.wordpress.com
Several educational institutions are using the tools in edublogs.org
