Yesterday Tim blogged about the Lynda course “WordPress in the Classroom” by Chris Mattia that takes faculty through setting up a course using WordPress. Mattia created the site through an example institution on Reclaim Hosting Tim created called State U. What’s cool about that is not only does it serve as a resource for anyone using Reclaim Hosting, but it also demonstrates how slick our hosting environment has become.
What I’m most excited about with this tutorial is the fact that Chris spends some time breaking down how to use FeedWordPress to feed in student sites, as well as how to subscribe to them. This has been a long time coming, and Chris explains it beautifully.
The other element I like is that the course setup is broken down into manageable chunks, and I could really imagine setting a faculty member loose on this to try it out, and then following up with pointed questions.
