KOTESOL National Conference 2015 - A Roadmap for WordPress as LMS

KOTESOL National Conference 2015 - A Roadmap for WordPress as LMS

https://aaron.kr/content/talks/a-roadmap-for-wordpress-as-lms/

Presented at: KOTESOL 2015 National Conference

This slideshow is a modified version of my longer look at WordPress as LMS (https://speakerdeck.com/asnowberger/kotesol-jj-wordpress-as-lms-learning-management-system).

With this presentation, I tried to reduce the amount of theory and increase the amount of practical application steps that teachers could use to begin creating their own LMS websites with WordPress.

This slideshow is accompanied by my own "WordPress as LMS Roadmap" paper that gives step-by-step advice and instructions for building a (basic) WordPress LMS.
