Learn how to Blog using WordPress.com

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.

My aim is to provide you with some computer awareness! I will teach you how to use a PC and how to “tame the beast”, so you need not be afraid of using a PC and you will become excited by its potential. I can come to you and teach you on your own PC or you can come to me and use one of mine. I teach individuals or small groups of maximum 3 persons.
