BlogMeister Resources

Page history last edited by Anne Davis 11 years ago

Are you ready to create your very own blog? Here we go!

 

Handouts

 

The first handout is Creating a BlogMeister Account.doc It will provide step-by-step directions along with screenshots.

 

The second handout is Customizing and Maintaining a BlogMeister Account.doc. It also has plenty of specific directions and screenshots to keep you "afloat". You will learn about templates, how to add links on the sidebar, the control panel, and how to write articles. (Articles are the name given for blog posts by David.) You will learn about the Class Panel and how to add student accounts.

 

The third handout is Adding Links Images and Podcasts.doc The process for adding links and pictures is explained in detail. Later you might want to provide this handout to the students to expedite the learning process.

 

Once you have completed these three handouts you will have officially joined the world of blogging! Welcome!

 

Now the rest of these resources will be a collection of links to specific items of interest and specific "help pages" that either David or other BlogMeister users have already created. You can get to these as you need them.

While this session has been dedicated to explaining BlogMeister I did promise to show a similar class blog in WordPress. You can see it here. If you are interested in learning more about WordPress James Farmers' edublogs site is the place to begin. There are many resources here. View the  video overview on the front page and if you want more see these additional video tutorials. Here is another tutorial that I have frequently used.
