Complete set up of your personal blog for sharing all class papers. See the list of guidelines below. To begin, complete the initial setup. The setup for posting and sharing a draft is very simple. You have the option to add refinements as the semester progresses. If you need help, email our volunteer tutors or me at firstname.lastname@example.org. (If you include your blog URL and WordPress password, I’ll be able to log in and make adjustments for you.) I’ll have my iPhone or iPad with me when I’m away from my desktop, so I’ll be able to respond to your email within an hour or two — if not sooner.
If you have a WordPress blog from another project or class, you can use it for this class. If you’re registered in two of my classes, you can set up one blog for both classes. The key is to identify each draft so we’ll know which class it’s for. A quick way to make sure we go to the correct draft is to create a hotlink from the URL that you post in Laulima directly to the draft in your blog.
If you’re unable to set up your blog in time for our RD1 posting, send your RD1 to me in the body of your email message as a text-only file. Don’t send it as an attachment. I’ll post it in our group blog and send you the URL to share with classmates in Laulima.
Another alternative is to ask a classmate or a friend with a WordPress blog to publish your drafts in her/his blog for you. S/he doesn’t have to be in our class. Ask her to send you the URL for your draft. After receiving the URL, post it in the Laulima forum for submitting it.
If you’ve completed the setup, please consider helping classmates. To let them know you’re available, email me (email@example.com) or email the class by clicking on Mailtool in our Laulima sidebar and, for the “To:” line, click on Roles and select Student and Instructor.
