Thursday, week 3 (Sept. 10)

Today is the fourth day of the third week.

Give yourself a pat on the back! I was talking with the Digital Learning team, and asked if this week's workshops on Bergbuilds and WordPress would be useful for you. "Nah, if your students have their sites set up and are posting, this would not be very valuable for them." So you're officially no longer beginners in the blogging world, well done!!

BUT if you have a friend or fellow student in another course who's new to Bergbuilds, you can point them in the direction of Friday afternoon's workshop (3-4pm), Zoom ID and password are in this PDF

Later in the semester there should be workshops for more advanced users like you. Back in the pre-pandemic days we had a lot of fun with Domains and Donuts, where students, staff and faculty gathered in the Hive in the library and shared tech tips and brainstormed, and nibbled on donuts. Ah, I'm all nostalgic now!
