I *think* Ken says most of his students just use something like wordpress.com and have theirname.wordpress.com – which I think is what you’re saying, Alan? Which I also believe is definitely a good start for them to see if they want this (especially if not using in other courses). I don’t think any blogger starts out with paying for a domain to start their web presence… most of us (these days, anyway) start out on a hosted platform then move when we realize we DO want to have an ongoing online identity… and that it’s worth inventing some money into it. This approach is, I think, half of DoOO. It’s a space for students to control outside of the LMS, but it remains under the restrictions of wordpress or whatever platform (and its terms of service and the possibility of it disappearing later). Half way there, I think. Depending on what you’re trying to teach them, of course
