ENG 111: WordPress RSVP

  • Welcome to WordPress blogging. For English 111, you will publish an introductory post and the revisions* of your three essays to your blog. You are welcome to post additional items, but keep in mind that websites are public spaces. If you want to compose a private post, change the post’s visibility from public to private.
  • After you have set up your blog and before you write your introduction, reply to this post. To do that, scroll down to the bottom of the post, and look for the image of the air mail envelope. If you don’t see it, click on the post’s title, “WordPress RSVP” and scroll down again. I will use the blog addresses in your replies to create the links on our class page, “English at GTCC.”
  • If you encounter any technical difficulties, email help@wordpress.com.
  • WordPress will automatically save your drafts as you write, but posts will not be visible to others until you publish them.
  • You can repeatedly edit your posts after you publish them. If you see something that needs changing, return to the editing mode, make any changes needed, and click “update.”
  • I encourage you to maintain your blog after the end of the semester. Let it continue to grow and evolve to suit your personal and/or professional needs.

*In addition to posting your essay revisions to WordPress, you will post them in Moodle.

  1. Hey Jane, another interesting process in virtual learning. I’m wondering how virtual will be useful in education in the long term. When we have vaccines it will change things again, but I’m thinking some changes will remain. I’m sure there’s already a lot of speculation about these questions.

    Thanks for sending this. My best wishes, Lenore

    1. Thanks, Lenore. When my spring semester classes moved online last March, I used my blog and the Blackboard learning management system for course delivery. The classes I’m teaching now are seated face-to-face classes, but I still require my students to maintain their own blogs and post comments to mine. If we do return to all remote instruction–and it’s likely that we will–the students’ experience with the WordPress platform will make the transition easier.

    1. Thank you, Miss Sparkle. Post another reply that lets me know which student you are. Then I’ll be able to link your blog to the class page.

    1. Thank you, Andrew. You successfully replied with you blog address, but I am just now sorting through the comments and adding links. I will delete your additional replies.

    1. Thank you, Nathaly. You successfully replied with your blog address earlier. I’m still in the process of adding the links to the class page. I will delete your additional reply.

    1. Yes, Gavin, you’re in the right place. I’ve linked your blog to the class page, but it appears that you haven’t launched it yet.
