Once you have set up a wordpress account, you are ready to post!
Login to your class site. This URL will be your class site followed by /wp-admin. (This is different from the login to see what your colleagues have posted – you get to see their posts via the course blog tab of the course site, and the password there will be the course number)
Once you log in, you will see a page like this – this is the WordPress “Dashboard”
Look at the upper bar of the dashboard, there should be a plus sign with the word new next to it. Hover over that and click on “post” in the menu that appears
Create a catchy title for your post (not just “Post for Class”), write the required word amount and click publish!
