Using WebNG

Update:  Okay, clearly what I wrote below puts the horse before the cart.  Let me try again.  To add multimedia to our class site, we’ll be housing our files at our own WebNG personal accounts.  Then, log into your WordPress account, go to “dashboard” on the left-hand side, and click on “my blogs.”  Once there, you should see our class blog listed.  See if you can use your “page” on our blog.  If you can, you should be able to add the title for your audio file and then upload the file (using its WebNG URL from your account) preferably by highlighting the title text and making it a hyperlink.  Uses the link icon to do this.  At the very least, send me your WebNG URL for your edited mp3 by deadline.

Quick post today. Try watching this YouTube video to understand how best to upload or get the address for your audio file. Create the “audio” DIRECTORY first, and then upload your mp3 file. Then, go to our WordPress blog and upload to our Student Work page. FYI: The tutorial discusses creating a whole page, but don’t fret. You’ll still find useful directions here.
