Here is a Knight Domains teaching site example from Professor Parisa Meymand who is working with her students on a blogging project around Social Geography. This blog was established for the Fall 2018 course.
On this page you can learn about the technical details of the site, see screenshots of the site, and hear from Professor Meymand about how she worked with students to collaborate on this site.
GEOG 225 Domain in Professor Meymand’s Own Words
“For Geog 225, we established a domain to display students’ blogs on WordPress. For many students, this was their first attempt at blogging for academic purposes. For their blogs, students were able to select what they wished to blog about for particular chapters, and therefore students were able to expand upon topics within a chapter that were of particular interest to them. We also expressed the importance of having an audience for our work, and having it out in the open, so students also tweeted a link to their blogs. Many students added reflective components to their blogs, links to other sites, and relevant photos/videos. The blogs on WordPress provided a creative outlet for student engagement, and will be something I’ll continue in the future.”Professor Parisa Meymand
