Are you a faculty member who wants to use WordPress for a course? The Educational Technology team can help you design effective assignments, incorporate blogging meaningfully into your course, and provide instruction in using WordPress to students in your class.
Here's how the process works:
What to expect:
Here are a few things you should know about writing your post:
If you are working on a course project, your instructor may have a specific Category where they ask you to place your post. Categories control where your post will show up on the final site. Set the correct category by looking in the Settings panel on the right-hand side of the editing window.
When you have added any additional needed content to your contribution, click Publish to complete your post. You can always come back to the "All Posts" view in your Dashboard if you need to make changes later.
You may want to become familiar with available blocks.
Visit the Dashboard and create a new H5P object using the “H5P Content” option in the left-hand menu. If you're new to using H5P, we encourage you to choose one from the following list:
Clicking on the “details” button to the right of any tool will let you see a little more about what it does, including a “content demo” that shows you the expected result. You can also visit h5p.org to see more demonstrations of the types of content you can create.
Once you have selected an H5P option, a new set of tools will appear. You’ll most likely see a dialog box that asks you to upload, name, and organize any content you plan to use. Have images and other content prepared ahead of time so that you don’t lose your work halfway through. There is no easy way to save a draft.
Creating an H5P Object
Follow the steps in the dialog box to build your content, and click “create” at the top right when finished.
Upon creation, you will see a sample of your finished object, and at right, a “shortcode”. Write down or copy the shortcode in its entirety — brackets and all. You will need the shortcode to place your H5P object within a page or post.
Once you have your H5P object created to your liking, the next step is to add it to a page or post.
Working in the Dashboard, select “Posts” (or "Pages") and then “Add New” from the menu at the left. You’ll open up an editing window for a new contribution to the site.
Once you have your settings how you like, you can insert your H5P into the post by typing or pasting in your shortcode.
Be sure to save regularly!
