An important, and often overlooked part of using any online space is retiring or relocating it when it is time – sort of like sending your blog to the blogging “farm!”
Chances are that your students’ individual blogs can follow them right through their time at your school. This is particularly valuable if they are being used as their digital portfolio.
If however they are moving schools and or leaving school completely there will be a need to export their blog’s content to another space or download significant content for them to take with them.
One idea is to export the blog as a graduation gift to the student. You will need to inform parents of this, where it has been relocated and that you are no longer supervising it. Edublogs is a place that can import the content and present it as a whole and instructions are provided here
Edublogs is the same technology as Global2 and has online support for users.
