I wanted to introduce my class to wordpress.com by creating a class page to increase communication for assignments. However, during a session with one student to create a how-to-guide, I became aware that each student would be forced to create a blog. This will overwhelm some of the students due to age, and others simply don't have time. Is it possible to have people become members and leave comments with out setting up a blog? In addition, I requested to follow the blog with a different e-mail. This blog never showed up and I was pushed to create a blog.
If every person must be a wordpress blog user, this will grossly limit my audience.
The blog I need help with is sakuratouch.wordpress.com.
