This week we are working on WordPress Themes. Make sure you have WordPress installed on a USB or portable hard drive. As the machines in the class are Windows, use Instant WordPress. For information on other alternatives for your laptop or home computer, see How to Install WordPress on Your Computer or USB.
The Winter Clark College CTEC 280 Introduction to WordPress class will be working on creating multimedia posts in WordPress coming very soon. Dig out your digital cameras and recorders and bring them to class. If you have ones to share, bring those. I’ll be announcing when soon.
If you currently have a video hosting service like YouTube, Vimeo, Daily Motion, etc., bring password access with you for uploading video.
NOTE: Currently, the computers in the room only connect via USB, so bring USB connectors (and extra batteries or chargers).

Moratorium! As of Tuesday January 24 class, please do not change your WordPress.com subdomain. It breaks the feed. Thanks.
We’re famous! Jacques did an amazing article for us in The Columbian on Saturday in “Blogging pioneer blazes trail for WordPress at Clark College.”
Get your copies online and off. It’s snowing here so I’m not sure I can get off my mountain and across the river, so if someone can get me a couple extra copies, I’d really appreciate it. Get a bunch to send friends and family and put in your scrapbook! Congrats to all!!
