Has anyone used the blogger for word option? Looks like if you download the add-in, posting is possible from Microsoft Word and your pc. A blogger account is still required, naturally, but it might make things easier for students already familiar with Word and hesitant to use the online wysiwyg editor. About Blogger for Word has more detailed information and links to a FAQ help page as well.
I'm a bit hesitant to show this to my grad students. They are comfortable with posting weekly using the blog editor. A new way to post may add stress and they are a bit overwhelmed with technology at this point.
