Just make them public :\ What is this, paranoia? –  Raynos Mar 3 '12 at 18:30
@Raynos - Maybe there's more to the story than you know. Maybe students names are involved. Maybe he's worried about privacy issues for them. Maybe there is something else that you haven't taken the time to think about. –  jmort253 Mar 3 '12 at 18:52

Wordpress is a very extensible platform. One day, it was used primarily for blogging. Today, it's used for everything from ecommerce to fortune 500 websites and so on.

BuddyPress, Social Networking plugin for Wordpress, is oftentimes used to Run a Company Intranet. The User Access Plugin is used to control membership, groups, and permissions, so you could probably use it for multiple classes.

Another option is Google Apps. They do have an education version, and there's a free version. With Google Apps, you pay $10 per year for a domain and can create up to 10 users for free using your domain. However, Google is very extensible, and you can easily share Google Sites with users outside the domain, such as gmail users.
