How to write a post

Each week, you will be expected to submit at least one post in response to a question or discussion prompt provided by Professor Klich. Here are the steps to posting your response:

  1. On the left menubar, go to Posts > Add New. Alternately, from the top ggrey menu, you can choose New –> Post.
  2. Give your post a title and type away!! Be sure to spell check and use proper formatting.
  3. CATEGORIZE: After you are finished, be sure to assign your post the appropriate category that is listed on the right. The category should correspond with the date the assignment was given and the topic. For example, your first assignment should be assigned the categories “##1 – What is Sustainability?″ Do NOT assign your own category; just choose from the selections available.
  4. PUBLISH: Be sure to click “Publish” to see that your post can be seen on the website.
  5. To see your post as it appears on the webpage, go to the Home page and click under the Categories in which you assigned your post.
