WordPress in UK Education Event: Would you come? Do we need one? Are you using it?

So as the title of this post asks, do you think we should try and hold some sort of UK WordPress in education event? Would you be interested, would you come? There is a JISC WordPress listserv but it has very little activity. There are growing numbers of individuals and organisations using WordPress in UK education, there are annual Blackboard user meetings and Moodle meetings and although there is annual UK Wordcamp there’s not an educational event.

Add Surveys and Quiz Assessments to Wordpress – Modified Plugin

This plugin is a modified plugin based on a couple of other wordpress plugins – in fact my idea was to simplify and just remove features that are not needed. I created a quick Podcast on installing and using the plugin. My idea is that this could be useful in a situation with mobile labs, computer labs, or even ipads. Teacher creates a quick survey, or quick quiz, or even a formal for grade assessment. The Student can then take the quiz using an iPad quickly visit an instructors site – take a quick or survey and would get instant feedback.

Curate Your Favorite Content with the ExpressCurate WordPress Toolkit

Curate Your Favorite Content with the ExpressCurate WordPress Toolkit | Wordpress in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
NLafferty's insight:

I'be always thought Wordpress can be used as a content curation tool as blog posts can sign post students to learning resources elsewhere on the web. This plugin looks like it will make this even easier.

Robin Good's curator insight, June 27, 10:22 AM



ExpressCurate is a free WordPress plugin which allows you to capture any content you find online, and to edit and curate it directly inside WordPress.


Key features include:
 

  • Grab and load any URL content
     
  • Provides editable title, image and content areas
     
  • Pre-loads multiple key content chunks from original content and meta-data and makes them ready for insertion

  • Offers SEO dedicated fields 
     
  • Auto-suggests relevant tags
     
  • Can add annotation and text boxes into curated posts
     
  • Auto-link to original and personalized attribution text


ExpressCurate also provides:


- a Chrome extension to easily capture and curate content as you browse, which provides an editing interface similar to what Scoop.it provides with his bookmarklet. The extension also adds a cool "curate" link to your Twitter interface which allows you to curate also any content on the 140 character platform. See this screenshot: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/spa/782adzfe036gp2y/vklvggma.png 


- a free WordPress theme for curated news and magazines sites.


A good and easy-to-use content curation tool for anyone using WordPress. Excellent free solution for authors and journalists who only need an easy and effective solution to start curating without needing to learn or adopt a new platform.



Free to use.

Sharise Cunningham's curator insight, June 28, 10:22 AM

It's always good to have an effective, easy-to-use tool, especially if you're more creatively-minded than technical.

Mike Power's curator insight, July 7, 2:37 AM

Although I don't use WP that much this looks very useful. I'll check it out on one of my WP test sites.
