A WordPress site hosted by Palomar College is an easy to use alternative to a “regular” website. How to obtain and manage a WordPress site for individuals, departments, and special programs will be discussed. If you have ever wanted a website but worry that you do not have the technical skills to create and manage one this workshop is for you.
Ever wish for a way to know when students access your course content? Or to know how long they spent on a given question within a test? Would you like Blackboard to tell you if a student hasn’t been into your course site in more than 7 days? (Or 2 days, or whatever you want.) How about an easy way to send an email to all students who did particularly well on the last test?
From Statistics/Tracking information on a single item, to reports on student access times, even to the Retention Center’s ability to notify the instructor about students meeting particular criteria, Blackboard does offer up some tools which may be of assistance. Come learn how to activate, and interpret, these analysis tools.
Building online forms is easy using WordPress and Gravity Forms. Attendees of this workshop will learn how to create a form and manage submissions. Previous experience with WordPress is recommended.
