With over 7 million users on WordPress.com, chances are that a number of faculty and students are bound to be familiar with the application at your campus. Case in point, a faculty member new to blogging at UMW just came in for a consultation, and while she was new to UMW Blogs and hasn’t used blogs for her classes before, she does blog on her own and is using—that’s right, you guessed it!—WordPress. So, my job was easy, all I had to do is explain and show her the plugins we use to make syndication hum, pointing out some advantages of using these re-publishing tools for tracking her students’ work all from one course blog. Man, the dividends are really starting to pay off with this stuff, and it truly does change the support model.
