We’ve chosen a blog platform to develop this virtual classroom. We’re using a WordPress platform provided through this U.S. based institution’s office of online learning as our tool since this is both freely available and offers many features to promote and incorporate open source resources. Let’s watch a perspective on blogging from the Common Craft team of creative designers. (Note: By design we have selected a closed captioned video on this topic from the Dotsub community. This offers more information on why we are using a blog both through a video representation and with closed captioning for those needing such assistance).
