Blogging Software

In a previous blog we showed how you could publish your presentations to the web. But, what happens when you want to organize your presentations in one site? Of course, you can get someone to build you a web page to put all your videos and presentations in, but this will cost you not only money but also you will depend on a webmaster to update your content.

If you don't want to depend on webmasters you can put up and update your site using blogging software.
The two best known are Blogger and WordPress. Both are not only free but you also get free hosting.

WordPress also has a free downloadable version that you may install in a server. In this case you will need to pay for installing and hosting, but once installed you will be able to update your site without depending on a webmaster.

For a start you may use one of the two previously mentioned hosted blogs. Should you need more power, you can move to the WordPress self hosted version.

This "Technology for Teaching and Learning" blog uses Blogger. Our new "Video and Lecture Center" uses the self hosted version of WordPress. Click on the image to visit the site.
