B What shows up in the “resources” tab?

circle3_fade6I’ve just added this to the installation info on, but it’s worth repeating: be sure to limit discussions to registered users. This way, you won’t have to worry about comment spam. It also encourages your class to be logged in, which encourages more activity. At right is what my discussion settings look like in the Settings>Discussion area of the WordPress backend:

    Have the option “Allow people to post comments on new articles” checked makes commenting available on new posts. If that box is unchecked, the default on new posts will be for comments to be closed. That’s fine if you want to keep your site more one-directional. Ideally, however, all posts can be commented on and by classroom members (registered users) only.

Avatars are used along with nicknames to identify users of the site. Students need to only set up a Gravatar once and it follows them around whenever they register with the same email address. Students may add multiple email addresses and avatars.

Avatars are cropped into a circle on the site, but should be uploaded as a rectangle.

One response to “Use to add avatars to site”

  1. John says:

    I’d suggest having students add the gravatars on the first day of class. If keeping a student’s identity private is important, avatars may be abstract or of a favorite object, and the nickname something that won’t appear in a Google search or be identified immediately with the student.
