Making It Mobile
Linking to Our Current DatabasePer Dr. Rodrigo's suggestion, I asked a former student and a current colleague to give me feedback on my site. The student loved it -- no suggestions, just love! My colleague also really liked it, particularly the timeline and the world maps in the headers. She wondered about whether I would use the school's database Veracross still (this is where we are told to put syllabi and digital handouts) or if I would use my Wordpress site exclusively. A great question because she and I have found in our years of teaching in a laptop program that students do not like having to go to different sites when fewer sites would work just as well. So I am left with the question: Will my students want my assignments and handouts in the same place where they get them for other classes or will they want all of my course stuff in one site so they do not need to decide where to go for different aspects of my course? I have decided to ask my classes this at the start of school because I can easily go either way. This will also be a great way to show them right off the bat that they have control over our class site since I will do whatever they decide.
