For the technology assignment, I made a rampage blog as the repository for all the online teaching resources I found. The home page of rampage can be easily found using google and keywords VCU rampage. once you find the site, the first you need to do is register for a personal site using your VCU email. The process is very simple, but if you run in to any problem, you can easily find help by using the “trouble?” tag on their home page. I had to research out to them due to forgotten password once, the respond was fairly quick, and the recovery process was very simple.
The first thing you will see when you first log into your won site is the page of dash board. In here, you can make personalized modifications on the overall outlooks of your site. Under the “activation”, you have a number of high quality pre-made themes available. However, if you want make you site more personalized, using the taps under “active theme”, you can make changes to the color, background images, and placement of menus, widget etc.
The next step will be making contents. On the rampage, you can making content through three different ways: 1. Making a post. 2. Make a page. 3. Make a form. The posts are the first thing people will see when they log into you site. You can post all the content through here, however, in my case, since the contents are from to multiple courses, put all that information here might be too messy. So I only made one post as my home page. On this post, links to different course content can be found (as right now, only one link is live)
For the actual course contents, I used the page functions. The links provided on the homepage will lead the reader to the chapter outlines of each course, from there the the readers can make there ways directly to the chapter of interest. For each chapter, a page is created, and inhere I uploaded all the online teaching resources that I found that are related to this chapter. The edition of the page is very intuitive. The only thing I think is worth mention is that when you are trying to upload a online video, it is easier to do it using a coded link though the text edit mode.
The nice thing about the blog format is that you can make any changes at any time, and there is not a limit in the amount of content that you can included in there. And since the coding used here are universal to all WordPress site, when you are no longer associate with VCU, all these work can be easily copy and pasted into another WordPress site.
