Teaching with WordPress MU


I start my first class tomorrow: LIS753 Internet Fundamentals & Design.

We’re hosting all of our courses at http://classes.tametheweb.com/, via a WordPressMU installation. After considering and playing with Drupal, I was drawn back to WordPress and its ease of use and multiple blog possibilities. Watching the excellent WP-based work of Casey Bisson and Alan Levine helped me make my decision to stay with WP. My ultra-cool grad assistant Kyle Jones worked on making the classes site functional and pleasing to the eye. Thanks Kyle!

We’re sticking with WordPress now and hope to add the officially released version of Buddypress in the winter to further extend the community around these courses. 

Please take a look at the courses and let me know what you think.

I’m excited to begin my third year of teaching. 🙂
