Case Study: Using WordPress in our Classes
We teach web design as part of a full-time arts degree to the University of Toronto at Mississauga students. They learn WordPress as part of their course, but we also use BuddyPress and bbPress for our forums. In addition, we’ve developed some of our own plugins to mark assignments, and provide testers from which our students can learn on their own and at their own pace. WordPress is a fundamental piece of what we teach and is necessary for our students’ success.
In this session, we’ll share how we teach WordPress at Sheridan College, how we use WordPress to help our students learn from one another (and streamline how we respond to questions), and plugins we’ve built to better teach our students and streamline our marketing processes.
