Description: I’ve been using WordPress forever for myself and have used it as a significant part of online courses for a while. I’m teaching using only WordPress (but for a gradebook) this semester. But I have a lot to learn and hope to learn from this community. I’m particularly interested in fostering community, conversation and connections–and handling the overhead it takes to work with a distributed community of student blogs/sites while centralizing just enough to facilitate those connections.
