On Monday I start a new class. In previous years I have been surprised by just how reluctant students have been to share their work online. The last thing you want to hear from students when you’re teaching a web development course: “Our work isn’t going to be on the Internet is it?!” (But, frankly, I have.)
Call To Action
Create Your WordPress.com Blog and Follow Your Classmates (and Teacher)
- Create a WordPress.com blog
- Leave a comment on this blog entry with the URL to your newly created blog
- Visit each others’ WordPress.com blogs while logged in and click on the “Follow” button
When you arrive at class in future weeks be sure to log in to Edmodo and your WordPress.com blog at the beginning of the lesson. You will be able to see what other people are posting, and you will have your blog open to post things to during class.
Your First Entry
- Create a new entry, call it ‘Hello World.’ Introduce yourself. Write a little bit about why you’re doing this course.
Welcome and good luck!
