Diary.com

http://diary.com/

Diary.com allows not only text, but photos, graphics, links, music, files and videos can be included in your diary entry. You can make your entries private or social, and you send entries to your diary by e-mail.  In March, there are plans to launch a public diary feature too.

Students can create multimedia journals to share only with their teachers.  This site could also be used for students to create a shared or public journal pretending to be a fictional or historical character.

Can you think of other ways to use this site with your students?
