For your group case study, you will be developing a website that will feature your policy recommendations and your research. Below are some handouts and videos to get you started using WordPress; if you need more help, please consult with the media tutors at the CTL.
Here are other instructions on using WordPress:
As a Davidson student, you have access to many professional WordPress themes for free. You can browse themes from three different services: StudioPress and Organic Themes, for example. StudioPress is probably the easiest one to manage. Using the default Davidson Domains setup, these themes will be preinstalled. There are also many free WordPress templates that you can use, but I would take advantage of free access to premium WordPress themes.
In addition to Fuji and the Instructional Design Group in T&I, Davidson also has a staff of ‘media tutors’ that can help you with WordPress issues. They are located at the library in Studio D during regular evening open tutor hours.
