- If you are using a WordPress site for a class this semester, you are a website admin! If you’re having problems with your or students’ images on the site, check out Evan’s Debugging Your Image Problems: Help for New Website Admins for advice on how to fix those bugs.
- Also perhaps of interest if you are using WordPress, is my post, Using Images with WordPress, where I share some of the things I’ve learned from my own WordPress experience, and Online Assignments and Student Privacy, which is about some of the discussions about how to protect student privacy if you’re having them do online assignments.
- Two recent posts on some new Blackboard features: Multimedia Content in Blackboard, about how to incorporate rich media into your Blackboard course, and Blackboard’s Electronic Red Pen covers the new inline grading tool.
- And, if you’re interested in using Google Drive, here’s a post with some ideas of how to use it for student assignments: Three Ways to Use Google Drive for Student Assignments.
I hope all of you at W&M are having a great first week back in the classroom, and to those of you outside W&M as well, whenever your classes begin!
