This is a Test.
How to Create a Post on Westminster Radio’s WordPress site
- Go to net/admin
- Click log in with Google and use your my.westminster email and regular university password.
- Here you will be able to access the ‘Dashboard’.
- The Dashboard contains multiple options, such as Posts, Media, Pages & Users.
- Within Users, you can edit your profile and add a picture and some text about yourself.
- You need to create a POST (NOT a page, as this is different).
- To create a post, locate ‘Posts’ within the left side column on the Dashboard page.
- Hovering over ‘Posts’ will give you four options; All Posts, Add New, Categories & Tags.
- Selecting ‘Add New’ will bring you to this page…
- This is where you will create your new post. The title is YOUR NAME (First and last name).
- To add your new post to the correct page within westminsterradio.net, you need to select the category in which you want it to be seen. The category section is located on the right hand side, labelled in ‘Categories’…
- For your Digital Entrepreneurship blog, please tick Digital Entrepreneurship, under Third Year.
- Then write your blog, starting with the sub-heading, Blog Post One.
- When you have finished, you can click preview, on the right hand side, to preview the blog. And then click Publish, to publish the blog.
- In future weeks, please return to the SAME blog post. You will find this in the list of ALL POSTS. Locate your post, and click ‘edit’ and add each successive entry in the text underneath (again, using the sub heading Blog Post Two, Blog Post Three, etc). Please do not create separate posts for each time frame, as it will confuse us!
The Blog Brief
- This is a formative assessment, in other words, it does not carry any marks or weightings but it is a vital part of the coursework submission and will be taken into account alongside the other written material submitted with your Individual Project audio.
- It is designed to help you demonstrate your research, planning and organisation and the progress of your commission. It will be read by the markers to help them gain an insight into how you approached the task of finding a commission, and of designing the audio itself and the production schedule, to meet the brief.
- Make sure you detail the production schedule including the tasks undertaken for the project and that you give accurate timeline
- Make sure you evidence the research you have undertaken and list the contacts used.
Suggested format for the blogs:
- Write a post every other week, beginning on 10 October 2017, but in the final week you will need to write the last post only a week after the last one.
- You might wish to include references to audio you have listened to, as part of your research. Do link to the audio if you can.
- You might want to track your research using some kind of visual data tools (e.g. graphs, or tables, or Excel spread sheets) or to reference social media tools used in your research (e.g. Twitter, Facebook).
- You might wish to include academic references of reading, but this is not compulsory.
- You might also want to reflect holistically on how the commission and the subsequent audio piece is shaping up, and analyse and critique constructively any areas that you feel you can improve on.
- Please remember that the blogs are published on a LIVE website and are therefore visible by anyone. Please refrain from libelling anyone, showing disrespect or writing any other prejudicial and discriminatory comments. The blog is solely concerned with YOUR performance, no one else’s.
- There is no stipulated word length for each post.
