Tasks for Week 1

In week one we are going to take you through setting up your wordpress blog. The blog  is going to be central to the work and reflections that you make during the course of the module. WordPress is a very flexible tool and more importantly it is a good example of a web 2.o convergent media platform.

It is essential that you become familiar with it over the next week. To get a free wordpress blog you need to go to wordpress.com and sign on with a sensible user name. The blog will allow you to begin to understand how the structure of the web is currently organised and it will give you an insight into  the major technologies that drive it.

Once you have got your blog you can start to add to it immediately and the first thing that we want you to respond to, in not more than 200 words, is the short lecture given by Stefan Sagmeister at the Ted.com site.


The business group will need to set their blog up on their own and Mez and I will help with any problems in the first workshop next Tuesday.

We will help the Red, green and blue groups this afternoon in GS305.

  • Red Group 1.30 to 2.15pm
  • Green Group 2.30pm to 3.15pm
  • Blue Group 3.30pm to 4.15pm
