Hi all. Welcome to ETEC 522.

We’re about to begin a shared journey over the next 14 weeks. So, let’s use this place for introductions and getting started.

I’m David Porter (davidp), a co-instructor for this course. You can reach me by email at –> dporter at bccampus dot ca.

Please add your own introduction. Include any web sites or bio info that you like. Add a photo.

Tell us your interest and/or experience with the theme of this course, and expectations you have for it. We’re really looking forward to navigating the venture terrain with you.

As a convention for posts in this module, please use these tags, separated with commas, in your posts:

introductions, M1, your last name.

You’ll begin to see our tag cloud in the right-side column for this course begin to grow and segment as we add posts and additional tags.

Below is an overview diagram for the course blog that is a quick reference to its features.

If you have any questions, please write a post and use the Questions & Answers category label for your post.

You’ll see additional instructions for using the course blog on the left column, under Pages.


Please jump in.

I would like to make my Intro post and read the “how to make a post” piece. It says…To create a new post, click on “Write” in the drop-down menu and select “Post”. Unfortunately I can’t find the drop down menu bar. Help!

Looks like the UBC back-end system has been repaired James. Please try again.

I logged out and in again but I still can’t find the drop-down menu. Others have been posting so it seems to work for them. Do I need to download WordPress?

Jim … I don’t see you “registered” in the blog. Please check the registration instructions sent out to students by email.

There should be a registration link in the left column after you sign on with your CWL.

Got it. Thanks
