On Sugar is a free blogging platform that I raved about last month. Like most blogging platforms On Sugar is very simple to use. On Sugar offers some great, easy-to-use, features that make it a better platform than most including an option to import all of your content from other blogs you’ve written on other blogging platforms.

On Friday, On Sugar announced new three column layout themes. These themes allow users to have two side columns on both sides of your main content (the style of Free Technology for Teachers) or users can have two widget columns to the right of the main content. (example here)
Applications for Education
On Sugar is easy enough to use that students in elementary school could learn to use it. On Sugar is also a good way to introduce adult learners to blogging.
