I’ve got to figure out how I am going to limit the ability of students not in my classes to create new weblogs. I’m sure at some point word will get out that we now have this weblog feature…I don’t want to worry about finding inappropriate content on our site. Membership is a similar issue…I want to limit it to just the students in my class.
Ken Dow says (at ManilaNewbies): “If you want to strictly control who joins your site, your can turn off Membership to hide the Members box and disable the automated sign up. Then only you can add Members using the Admin page. Remember to bookmark the login page before you try this, or you won’t be able to log in!” Is that the only way to do it, I wonder? That would mean that the teacher would have to put in the addresses and passwords, right? And would the teacher have to create all the sites as well? Any ideas???
