I am very pleased to present the websites from my fall 2010 students enrolled in MKTG 470 at James Madison University. Last week, each student successfully purchased a WordPress hosting plan and a .com domain name using GoDaddy.com. While waiting for their accounts to get set up, they worked on some HTML coding.
During the next week, my students will begin transforming their WordPress site into a unique creation. At first, they will learn how to establish a site theme, edit their “ABOUT” page, create new web pages, manage their navigational bar, create permalinks, get their blog started, customize authorship of their blog, work with widgets, add images to their website, and create hyperlinks to images and text. Later in the course, students will explore various plug-ins for search engine optimization and site analytics, change their site theme to reflect their individual personalities, add blog posts, create favicons, enable social media sharing, and much more.
I am very excited to help my JMU Marketing students hone their technological skills. Upon completing the technology segment of my course, I hope my students are prepared to evaluate and apply current technologies to support and enable the strategic internet marketing function.
As of 9:30 a.m. on September 16, 2010, all student websites appeared identical like the image below.
Come back to my site to see how they transform their sites during the next few weeks. I am confident that the fall 2010 class of MKTG 470 students will be dazzling. Below is a listing of my fall 2010 students and their URLs.
