Re: [K12OSN] Blog/CMS for student use

I'm currently testing out tikiwiki.org It's a wiki with forums, blogs, polls etc You can have editors witch have a higher level of access but not admin access. It's very configurable and granular in it's security settings.

Wordpress level 1 users can write posts, but cannot publish. It
requires someone at a higher level to publish. So you can set up a
blog in wordpress, make the teacher the administrator, and the
students level 1 users. They can write drafts all they want, but it
requires an administrator to publish. You can also set it to allow
approval of all posts.

They are also coming out with a multiple users version of Wordpress
(http://mu.wordpress.org/), so you can run one installation for all
your blogs. I hacked this into our installation of wordpress so we can
use it.

I really like Wordpress for it's power in it's simplicity.

what I didn't like about the default wordpress was that you had to
make the teacher an administrator so they could see who wrote which
post.   I wasn't too thrilled with making the teacher an
administrator.   Plus, how do you let the teacher know *when* a
student wants their work published.  A student would have no way of
distinguishing between a work in progress, and a final product.  the
post moderation plugin lets the student click 'publish', but the
article is put in a queue that require review before it goes live. The queue also lists who wrote the article. I think making the
teacher a level 5 is best for our case. 5 lets them review posts and
add new users.  They can not change the default behaviour of the blog.
