Pen.io - A Very Simple Blogging Platform

Pen.io is a simple blogging service that you can start using in a minute or less. To use Pen.io just head to the site, name your page, and select a password for editing. Once you've done those things you can start blogging. To edit your page just click on any of the predefined text and start typing. To add more pages just type the the ":page" tag, to insert videos just type the ":video" tag. One short-coming that Pen.io has is that it doesn't support images yet.

Applications for Education
If you're looking for a quick and easy way to get students blogging, Pen.io might just be what you need. Pen.io lacks fancy templates and layouts, but that could be a good thing as it will prevent students from worrying about aesthetics and turn their focus to writing.
