Edublogs Replaces WordPress: WordPress services were migrated to Edublogs services over the winter break. This migration provides a stable blog environment that is managed and monitored to ensure valid and secure features, such as themes and plugins, are evaluated and applied appropriately. Edublogs also offers a community where users can discuss new features and questions along with a wide array of training support documents, guides, and tutorials. Learn more here.
Wednesday Webinars: Academic Technologies' Webinar Wednesdays series offers an in-depth look at technologies related to teaching and learning. Webinars focus on a specific technology and offer best practices, tips, tutorials, and suggestions. For more information and updated schedules, go to www.pace.edu/webinars.
