Hi Class, my name is Professor Kevin Greenstein. I hope you had very Happy Holidays and that your New Year’s off to a great start!
Over the course of the next few months, we will be discussing the ways the world has changed (often quite dramatically) since the Internet started to become a part of mainstream culture in the mid-1990’s.
Dovetailing with those discussions, you’ll be building a WordPress website (topic of your choosing), learning what goes into an effective website (and social media presence) and getting a really strong understanding of the current technology. For this class, we’ll be working with the WordPress software, at first designed as blogging technology but now also a robust content management engine used by the likes of CNN.com.
If you have any questions about the class, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
