WordPress is a tool used to create interactive websites that contain blogs, information pages, and apps. This is so simple anyone comfortable with a computer can create them, but can also be as complex as you would like. For example, these sites can range from a simple site with just one page of information, to a site with a blog, information about a course and assignments, connections to social media, and feedback forms for comments or data collection or surveys.
Information for instructors about how blogs and websites can be used in the classroom.
