Is it possible for a teacher to have several different blogs? I ask because of a couple of couple of possible scenarios--an elementary teacher might need only one blog for their one classroom. But a high school teacher might want a blog for every subject or even every class they teach. Is it possible to implement the latter? Also, I would be interested in hearing how teachers use their blogs, mostly for posting homework assignments or putting curriculum online? What are some of the typical uses that occur when teachers are given easy access to blogging software? Do teachers prefer the simplicity of blogging to maintaining a more structured website? Thanks in advance! Ken Russell Bellingham Schools X-From: Christopher Ozias <firstname.lastname@example.org> We set up an installation of Wordpress Multi-User (although I believe the multi-user functionality has been wrapped into the latest release of Wordpress) and tied it in to our users (in Open Directory, maybe?) using an LDAP plugin. Initial set up took a little work figuring out permissions and finding an LDAP plugin that worked with our setup but it works. A blog is created automatically for a user the first time that user logs into the system; there are plugins that allow you to specify the settings (default theme, etc.) for each new blog created. So yes, it's possible. :-) --- Edtech Archives, posting guidelines and other information are at: http://www.h-net.msu.edu/~edweb Please include your name, email address, and school or professional affiliation in each posting.
