2 new blogging videos just in time for back-to-school!

It’s August!

And for many of you, that means new beginnings with a whole new school year.

We have two new videos we want to share that hopefully can help kick things off!

1. What is a blog?

We made this video for you to use with students, parents, or fellow educators to quickly explain all about blogs.

Feel free to share, use in presentations, and post on your own blogs or sites too!

2. What is Edublogs?

The second video is brief overview of Edublogs!

This video is the best way to share with a fellow educator or school administrator what Edublogs is all about.

More to come!

We have more videos, activities, and exciting feature announcements planned soon.

Make sure you don’t miss anything in the new school year rush:

Happy blogging!

And let us know if our team can do anything to help!

K-12 blogging just got… quicker

This week we’ve been mostly working on getting our K-12 Edublogs site, hosted at http://learnerblogs.org up and running on the same database structure as our teacher version – which you’re enjoying now!

And so far so good, we know that sites hosted at learnerblogs.org have been unacceptably slow of late – partly do to a huge surge in popularity and partly to us focusing a bit too much on edublogs.org – but from now on that should be a thing of the past.

And just for fun we’ve also introduced another layer of comment spam protection – so now your school students can blog quickly and even more safely too.

Just running a quick upgrade

Just running a quick upgrade to try to get the text editor to work… should be a few bonuses (if a little buggy at times) in there soon too… am still half way through vacation but it’s gnawing away at me like a hippo on a branch!

Update: yep, not quite there yet but most things seem to be going OK… and check out the new image management system!!!

Update 2: Fabuloso, we are green to go and everything should be working smoothly!!! Big thanks to Jason Bainbridge (also of 911blogs) for assisting!
