Hellooooooooo Domain Campers! What have you been up to? We provided some time last week for catchup. Week 4 is back and ready to go.
If you have been holed up all summer off the grid at a silent retreat, Domain Camp is part of the Ontario Extend project to create place to learn about many things you can do in a Domain of One’s Own. These are mostly self paced activities you might do anytime, but why not jump in now? To get started, see Domain Camp – Domains of Our Own
Once you have the skills for choosing where to put sites, in subdomains or subdirectories, how to make then SSL enabled, and see how those all come into play when installing Wordpress, well the apps for your domain are your oyster.
There are way too many for us to cover, so this week we provide activities for trying two of them, a URL shortener and a Dropbox like cloud file sharing platform-- all of which live on your domain.
The idea is then for you (yes I am talking to you, stop hiding in the back of the hall) to try one or more ones beyond that, and share what you learned in a new Activity in the Extend Bank. When you are ready to share, we have a form for you at https://extend-bank.ecampusontario.ca/add
Yes, Tom Sawyer is at work getting this fence painted. Eventually the collection can grow to a very large size from here https://extend-bank.ecampusontario.ca/cats/week-4/
We resume our regular schedule this week:
- A live / archived demo video Tuesday at 1pm EST. Watch anytime at
- Open Office Hours Tuesday 3pm EST or during our Ontario Extended lunch times Thursday at 12:30pm EST. These are open events to anyone, you can find the login-less link to join at Week 4: Exploring Other Apps To Add to Your Domain – Domains of Our Own
Get your apps on! If you have experience with any of the non-Wordpress apps, please consider writing an activity.
