I am proud to present the websites for my spring 2011 James Madison marketing students enrolled in MKTG 470.
Last week, each student successfully purchased a WordPress hosting plan and a .com domain name using GoDaddy.com. 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 James Madison marketing students hone their technological skills. As of noon on Monday, January 24, 2011, all student websites appeared identical like the image below.
Please revisit this page in a few weeks to see how they transform their sites. Based on the performance from my fall 2010 MKTG 470 students, I know that the spring 2011 students will do great. Below is a listing of my spring 2011 James Madison marketing students and their URLs.
