How I Use It
Wordpress is the blogging interface I show my students how to use when they are required to create blogs for my classes, which they often are. We set up a "mock" blog on wordpress and they learn how to create their own. Most of my students prefer wordpress for a basic, easy to use blogging interface.
Most of my writing courses involve students in creating blogs where they learn to write for an online audience while interpreting class material. While blogspot is a good interface for more web-savvy students, I find wordpress the best interface for getting students going with a blog with the smallest learning curve.
