Any visitor may post a comment, even without having an account, as long as you enter a name and valid email address. I’ll need to approve the first comment, as a way of cutting down on spam comments, but after that your comments will appear immediately, provided you use the same email address each time.
If you’d like to contribute new entries and/or view restricted content, you’ll need an account on PWRFaculty.net as well as author status on this blog.
- To sign up for an account, follow the directions on the PWR Faculty Network About page
- To request author status, contact Amy using the Contact link above
The site is run by WordPress, so if you’re not familiar with using WordPress, check out the handouts under the Using Custom WordPress category on my DigitalWriting101.net support site as well as the screencast tutorials on my Using WordPress channel on Vimeo.
This web site provides resources to help faculty in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric at CU Boulder promote digital literacy in their classes.
The opening page contains two sections of featured posts as well as a list of the more recent posts. To explore the site, please follow the links on the opening page, on the sidebar, or in the page menu at the top.
To post a comment on a blog entry, either click on the title of the blog entry or on the comments link below it (which might say “No comments” or “X Comments” or something like that).
The entry will then load on its own page with a comment window at the bottom. Type your comments in the window. Look over them before you click the Submit Comment button, as you will not be able to edit or delete your comments (although I can do so for you, if necessary).
Your comments will appear above the comment window and below the entry, with the newest comments at the bottom.
To post a reply to another person’s comment, click the Reply link directly below the comment. A new comment window will load. Type your reply and submit it. Your reply will appear below the original comment, indented several spaces.
POSTING BLOG ENTRIES
If you have author status on the blog, you may post new entries on any aspect of digital pedagogy or digital composition. For example, you might post: reflections on your experience with integrating digital literacy into the classroom, sample multimodal or digital rhetoric assignments, reviews of scholarly articles that address digital composition, links to and comments on news articles, reviews of digital tools, links to interesting videos, blogs, or other resources, and so on.
You might also showcase your own work, such as presentations or sample assignments, as well as the work of your students. Blog entries may be fairly short and informal, and you can always edit your posts later.
In order to post a new blog entry, first make sure you’re logged in by checking the Sidebar Login area in the lower portion of the page. When you’re logged in, you should see a link to Dashboard. Follow that link and then flick on the Posts tab on the left. Then click on the link to Add New.
A new post editing window will appear. Put a subject line in the top field and type your message in the editing window. Select an appropriate category for your post, and then click the blue Publish button.
For more details, see: Create a new blog entry.
The best way to share links with other PWR colleagues is to join our Diigo group. Follow the links at the bottom of the page under “Want to Contribute Links?”
You may also send me the URL of a site you’d like to see added to the sidebar links.
