I believe CommentPress is a great teaching and learning tool because it allows students to respond to course content and to each other (the paragraph-level comments also work as threads).  I use it in my classes by posting poems or passages from other literary works for them to comment on.  I also will put up written lecture material from time to time.  A good example of this can be found at http://usapetal.net/wpmu/eh216/2008/08/16/a-word-on-reading-poetry/.  
I have several other blogs that are in CommentPress as well:
Also, a faculty colleague of mine, who teaches poetry writing, has her students post their poems to Comment Press for feedback.  She has also used it for Freshman Composition courses.
