search cancel – Get Your Students Blogging

21Classes.comQuite a useful service, 21 Classes aim to let teachers and students have a space where they can meet outside the classroom and communicate with each other. This way, a more realized learning experience can hopefully be achieved.


Teachers can review entries as well as making important announcements, whereas students can receive feedback almost instantly. A nice touch is that students do not need to disclose information such as their e-mail addresses in order to get going.

As regards the actual setup and layout, the teacher can customize the headers as well as choosing a suitable template for his students to feel comfortable with. CSS editing is fully taken into account, too.

This service is essentially free, although it is always possible to upgrade to a paid plan. Features of this on-demand upgrade option includes a bigger number of student blog accounts (up to 100 – the free edition supports only 10), as well as the ability to use a domain of its own. All in all, a very well-focused service that I am certain can further education by giving teachers and students more channels for interaction. In Their Own Words
