    Can anyone recommend a website that is easy to setup where adult English as a Second Language students can submit classrooms writing assignments in a community format?

    I considered Blogger but then I would be responsible for typing up and adding all the assignments.  I would like it to be something where all students have access to post their writing and photos in a Blog format.  They will be doing weekly articles on the topic of the week.

    It will also need to be easy for the students to learn to use.


    Thank you so much

    Hi Necole,

    Have you considered Slack? It's a cloud-based work group tool. Once you set it up (which is very easy) and add the members via email, everyone can post their work. Folks can collaborate and edit things in real time and there is a instant message/chat feature. I'm not sure how or if you can then post things to a public space like Facebook or Google+. 


    Hope that helps.
