Using wordpress #ocTEL

April 29, 2014 in Blog post, Reader

WordPress blogs aren’t as tricky as you might think. You can get a wordpress blog with no knowledge of programming or databases.
Wordpress will host you blog so you don’t have to. However, it is when you do host your own blog that things really become interesting. I have just linked my twitter account to my blog feed so that whenever I post an entry in my blog, it automatically sends an update to my Twitter followers too. Thus I can reach twice the audience in the same time as it takes me to write a post.

I have neglected my blog for too long, so I think this course has helped me to find and make the time (I am blogging at 9.30pm…!) to post new things and write new blog posts.

    “Lurkers” vs “Silent participants”?

    Here are a few other terms that could be used:

    vicarious learners?
    silent participants?
    viewer?
    Non-public user?
    legitimate peripheral participator?
    eyeballers?
    virtual participant?
    marginal participant?
    onlooker?
    passive observer?
    cognitive apprentices?
    potential member?
    proximate member?
    sympathiser?
    supporter?
    listener?
    tacit member?

    See Let’s get more positive about the term ‘lurker’

    Which term best reflects the degree/ style/ of learning? If you read a book, but never talk about it, have you learned any less?

    Best wishes
