Global2 is the Department of Education and Training blogging platform and is its own ‘Campus’ of Edublogs. It has a Campus App for iPad and Android devices.

The technology is the same as Edublogs but there is no cost or advertising on Global2 for Victorian government and catholic schools. The support files

refer to many Edublogs resources.
