Student Issues on Day 1

In a class of around 20, I sat next to two ladies who had trouble navigating WordPress and other technologies, such as Google+. In fact, one even needed to create a Google account before starting any other steps, as almost all course activities will flow through Google products, like Google+, Google Drive, and perhaps Blogger (for those not appreciating WordPress).


As the course continued, several other students approached me regarding issues relating to creating a WordPress blog. In fact, after approaching some of the teachers, students even came to me for questions….as did one of the teachers.


This may be evidence of the fact that more clear instructions are needed regarding how to set up WordPress and navigate other online tools. In fact, the only instructions given say “Create a blog in e.g. WordPress or Blogger”.

Future course development may benefit from a clearer editorial.
