I have the feeling that a forum section might be a little bit too public

My Idea about this reports:
- the students write their own blog, where they post short summaries
once in a while (maybe twice a week).
- the students keep their source in a git repository. This doesn't
mean that they have to make every change to the code public, Git can
be used with private branches that the student can push to a public
repo in regular (or irregular) intervals.

Maybe demanding these things would be bit too much but I think
something like this a good way to track progress. It allows other
people to help easily, too.
