What were the learning goals for the project?

govcenter

To have the students understand better the history and design of Government Center, and to get experience turning their research into a webpage.

In what way did using the WordPress site support those goals?

Using WordPress was absolutely essential for having the students learn to translate their academic work into an internet media.

WordPress was simple and easy to use.  The students were both able to do basic inputting and formatting, and use their creativity.

Next Steps/Refinements

I don’t plan on teaching this course again.  But I would use this technology again for another course.
