I came across this site recently and thought it might benefit schools, teachers and students. The advantage is that is has no advertising. There are free and paid versions. It looks exactly like WordPress.com, but there may be some differences that I don’t realize. They do not make you prove that you are a school, teacher or student.
There is a BIG issue with the Free version – it is limited to 32 MB! That makes it almost worthless. If you want a Pro account it will cost $40/year, but they give you 10 gb of space. Students are also limited to 500 mb.
Here’s a video below.
