    I will be teaching the Creative and Media Diploma in September, for part of the course upils/students have to keep a Process Portfolio. I thought writing and keeping a blog might be the ideal way to do this as pupils can easily give peer feedback and I can easily see who is up to date and who is not.
    I have my own blog so know that there are lots of platforms avalable for setting this up, what I am wondering is if there are specialist providers who work for schools? Also what do I need to do with regards to safeguarding etc.
    Thanks in advance for your help!

  3. It might be worth checking with your LA or the Regional Broadband Consortium. Ours host a wordpress blog for schools, so filtering for spam comments etc is provided and there is no advertising.
    If that isn't possible you might want to search for providers that have an educational focus some of them (like pbwiki) will do free and no advertising to educational institutions - but they won't be filtering spam comments.

    All the VLEs that I know of have blogging as an integral part - to some extent or other. What VLE do you use? Doesn't that have a blog?
