edublogs is a hosted custom version of WordPress geared toward students, teachers, and educational institutions.

Very similar in flavor to WordPress.com, the platform features a heavily moderated selection of themes and plugins primarily geared toward the education market. It provides the ability for teachers to moderate students' content as well as privacy control for posts and comments.

While useful for educators and students, the platform isn't as flexible as WordPress.org for Indieweb use.

It does have a useful built in reader with the ability to follow other blogs on the platform.

It does provide the standard WordPress export so that students can create an online identity that they could port out and take with them at a later date.

The company also has a related (paid) enterprise grade hosted version as well for K-12, colleges, and universities with CampusPress.
