WordPress.com Classrooms

Get up and running — fast

We know you’re busy educating the world’s young minds, so we’ve made the site creation process as easy as 1-2-3: Register your site, customize your theme, and start posting — that’s it! No more excuses about how the dog ate yourhomework website.

Connect and collaborate

We’re all about engaging discussion. Invite students to post their thoughts on your latest lecture and submit their reaction papers as comments. Or maybe you just need a place to get the word out about class happenings — turn off comments entirely and make your site an informative online newsletter. You can even share class forms and documents with parents by using the media uploader.

Comments

Collaborate in comments

Your privacy is paramount

We get it — not everything can be public, especially in education. With blog privacy and password-protected pages, you control who sees your content.

Protect your class’ privacy

Dozens of education themes

Maybe your English Grammar class needs a formal, college-ruled look — Runo Lite should do the trick. Or perhaps your kindergarten website needs a whimsical touch-up — enter our newest theme, Chalkboard:

Designed by Edward Jenkins, Chalkboard is the perfect theme for a K-12 classroom website. It looks just like its namesake, complete with bottom-resting eraser and chalk, and supports multiple widget areas, custom header, background, and more. Read more about Chalkboard on the Theme Showcase, or activate it on your blog by going to Appearance -> Themes in your Dashboard.

Whatever style you seek, we’ve got your class covered.
