To participate in the Cool Tools workshop, you’ll need a blog to share your progress through the workshop. This is how we’ll keep track of whether you’ve completed each lesson and will also be one way for you to connect with other participants.
Don’t have a blog? If this is the first time participating in this workshop, you’ll learn about blogging and will set up a blog in the first lesson – Thing 1: Blogging.
Old Timers? If you’ve participated before, you can go ahead and register a blog you’ve used before.
After the workshop begins, you’ll receive an email prompting you to register your blog. A list of all the blogs will appear below. You can use the list to read and comment on posts by other participants.
Don’t worry if your blog doesn’t show up in the list immediately though. We still have to do some manual checking and editing of the registrations to get them to show up.
All the Posts: There will also be a webpage that uses RSS to create a list of all the posts that everyone is writing. So if you’re curious about what others are exploring, check out the Cool Tools Participants RSS Feeds page (September 2017: Note that the list for 2017-18 hasn’t been created yet.)
