Welcome to COM 160

22 Aug

Hello everyone! This is your official blog for COM 160, Fall 2010. In this course, we will be utilizing many social media tools — blogs are one of them.

This will be our first “tech” assignment for the semester — each of you will create a blog for this course. There are many tools available on the web to accomplish this — for the purpose of instruction, we’ll be using WordPress. WordPress is the #1 most used blog service. Read more about WordPress’ history here.

We will have a discussion about content delivery for the course. Let’s take a poll right now — would you prefer to have assigned readings posted here, or on MyCourses?
