Edublogs.org turns two today. Happy Birthday!
From the beginning, James Farmer’s goal was to provide free blogs to educators, especially teachers then later students, to build an interactive community where teachers can share and communicate with other teachers around the world, and help create an online teaching platform and interactive relationship with their students, and students around the world.
There are now over 50,000 blogs on Edublogs and it has expanded to include other free blogging services for university students, high school students, and English as a Second Language educators.
Edublogs is celebrating their two year anniversary with a new look and a roll-out of new features and improved services such as choosing from over 80 WordPress Themes, most of them widgetized for a variety of sidebar accessories, the latest version of WordPress, easy use of podcasts, video, images, and other multimedia into blog posts, Akismet and other comment spam protection, and so much more that is WordPress and beyond.
Because Edublogs is made by educators for educators we know a lot about how you can effectively use blogs in teaching and learning at all levels. We’re here to provide resources, discussion and suggestions for how you can use Edublogs for education and we’re always adding to them and working on our methods. Thinking of eportfolios, collaborative classwork, online journaling, discussion or problem-based learning or good old social constructivism? So are we!
One of the aspects of WordPressMU that has long fascinated me, but didn’t seemed to develop on some of the WordPressMU driven sites I’ve worked with, is that sense of community. James Farmer and the Edublogs crew has created that community with Edublogs, helping education cross barriers long sought impassible.
Congrats, James and all of Edublogs bloggers. Well done!
