Welcome to the new class site for the Clark College WordPress classes.
This is your site but more than just your class site. Students will work together to add to the wealth of information on how to use WordPress as part of your homework assignments. The site will serve future Clark College WordPress students, so write and contribute well as your articles will be helping students three, five, maybe even ten years from now.
How This Works
Check to see if you have an invite to the this site in your email inbox. Search for “WordPress” if you don’t see it and check your Notifications, Social, or Spam folders. Accept the invite to join the site.
Log into Gmail/Google+ and go to the ClarkWP Community. Click the red “ASK TO JOIN” button.
NOTE: While Clark College uses Google Apps for the student email now, they do not include Google+ as an option. We’re working to get that changed. Until then, please use your regular Gmail address. Sorry for the inconvenience.
While waiting for approval, scan the categories on the left under the “W” artwork. In Assignments, look for an assignment you wish to take on. Once accepted, reply to the post assignment you wish to take on for your first post. First come, first serve, but if you wish to fight it out with someone, let us know. We like to watch.
If you would like to discuss how the article should work, or ask for help, leave a comment on that post or start a new post in the Discussion category.
When you are ready for proofing and checking, post a message in the Ready for Checking category of the Google+ Community. Use the link from the post preview. That link only works for those logged into the ClarkWP site. If you would like someone to do a private review, use the Writing Helper feature.
During the course, you will be asked to publish four homework assignments on this site for grading, plus one interview article. You will be asked to choose from an assignment listed in the Google+ Community under Assignments. The editors and instructors will be adding article requests as the class progresses and ideas for articles are considered.
Work on the site beyond the graded assignments are welcome and optional, and may be considered for extra credit. All the articles you publish on this site may be used in your portfolio and may apply to your capstone project.
This is your site. Make it the best!
