academiPad's insight:

Roon might be good for getting class assignments published online. If this doesn't work for you, try tackk.com.

There's quite a long review and brief tutorial of Roon here: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/roon-is-a-slick-easy-to-use-blogging-platform-you-may-want-to-try/ I particularly like the comment in the summary "Sometimes we get caught up in complex blogging platforms, plugins and more. Roon takes all of that away and ensures that you focus on what matters the most – your words." A rich feature set isn't always an advantage. Roon certainly isn't a competitor to WordPress, but it does make it easy to just get down to writing. For students that can be quite an advantage.

I just tried Roon out and made a post (on my Mac, by the way). I wanted to try it to see if it was something to share with students. It was pretty easy, though figuring out how to change the title of the post from "Untitled" was frustrating (I assumed the "Header" was the title...not so. You just click on it after you save and can change it in the sidebar.). 

 

I'm not sure what the point of giving your blog a title was when it posts as your user name and never shows your blog title. My advice: use your blog title as your user name. 

 

Not sure if I will use this with my students, but it is a simple and easy format. And free. Here's my simplistic post: http://mrsorman.roon.io/untitled

Blogger vs. WordPress.com: A Complete Comparison

Blogger vs. WordPress.com: A Complete Comparison | academiPad | Scoop.it
Not long ago I wrote a two-part series about the main differences between a self-hosted blog and the other option of using a “free” blogging service.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
academiPad's insight:

How can you disseminate your research and have an online presence? Blogging is one great way to do so. This post compares two of the most favorite blogging sites: Wordpress.com and Blogger. Both are free.

I don't have much experience with Blogger, but when I started out I immediately focused on Wordpress.com. Why? Because there was an easy upgrade to running a more flexible, self-hosted blog using wordpress.org. I would do the same any day again, but read this comparison for yourself to decide via what platform you want to present yourself to the world.

CristinaSkyBox: Blogging Platforms Around the Block | academiPad | Scoop.it

academiPad's insight:

Two things I learnt from this scoopt:

 

1) Blogger might be closign down??? What's going, google? Is Search going to be the next one on the chopping block?

 

2) As a wordpress blogger, I am totally uncool. Check out these great blogging platforms that seem to transform your blog into your own personal socially networked facebook substitute (OverBlog) and that are so stylish that it hurts my eyes (Ghost)!

academiPad's insight:

This is amazing! I was looking for something that my students can use to hand in their assignments online, so it can be shared via a learnist board. For students who would like to have a blog this is not a problem, but for those who do not wish to blog, Tackk is like blogging without a blog. Amazing.

My Beginner ESL students have started blogging everyday and it has been a huge success!  They are enjoying it so much that they are improving their writing skills without realizing it. Blogging is good for all!

Education Rethink: Thirteen Thoughts on Student Blogging

Initially, the student blogs were nothing more than a class journal posted online. However, over time, they became a place for student voice. They evolved as my thinking about blogging evolved. So, here is what I've learned along the way:
