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.

More details are available on the Syllabus and Assignments pages.

If you have any questions about the class, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
