I am about to set up an online reading record onto our moodle
learning environment, called Bernard
, for our English Dept. The plan is to create either Wiki's for the books which different students would contribute to as they read the same book OR a blog per student which can be added to by themselves and the teacher but viewed by all. Would it be a good idea to keep these blogs behind the VLE security, or to use a seperate service like wordpress?
I am mildly concerned about the administration of creating and maintaining 160 blogs.
Any advice anyone can offer on the approach or the minor detail of how to execute this plan would be warmly received.
