Learn how to Blog using WordPress.com

Posted on

I have nearly finished writing my course on Blogging using WordPress.com

It is currently 6 sessions long. It will take my students from:

  • Getting signed-up to creating and modifying their initial 2-3 blogs.
  • Linking their posts to Facebook, Twitter and/or LinkedIn.
  • Changing a Post,
  • Saving Draft copy,
  • Adding Tags and Categories and so on.

I am at present teaching two groups and my students seem to have fun. There is a lot of hands-on and it is vital that my students bring their USB-flash drives containing pictures and documents of what they want to publish.

Up to now I have only had one real dilemma; that of explaining the advantage of posts on a blog against the disadvantage of a static website that needs a site-manager to update.

I hope that once we have the Blog up and running my student will see and understand the benefits that being able to instantly adding new posts will have for them.
