WordPress for Eduction 20. November 2012
Von Heidi Mueller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The book has lots of information on how to install and use WordPress but is very light on actual applications of WordPress in education. As there are many other resources on how to use WordPress, it would have been more useful if the author had focussed on examples of how to use WordPress in real education.

easy to apply to an academic context 29. Juni 2012
Von W Boudville - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The ostensible topic is how to apply WordPress to make a website used by a school or academic department in a university. But Scott writes generally enough that you might well choose to use this book to build most any non-commercial website that has interactions and contributions from its visitors. By non-commercial, I mean that there are no transactions. So no need to include shopping carts or to hook up to a payment provider. Which can be a great simplification to those of you who have had to code such features.

The text shows how to add topics or categories. Very easy under WordPress. You can accompany this with a short description. More importantly, a category can be within a hierarchy. This is the most important concept to grasp with using categories, and it is very simple. So a physics department might have a top level category spanning all physics. With subcategories for atomic, nuclear, particle, condensed matter and biophysics, for example. And each subcategory has finer separations, all ultimately mapping to research groups within the department. The analogy to your situation should be obvious.

Also, the book describes how to add third party WordPress plugins. There is a thriving WordPress community which you can easily search for on the Web. You are encouraged to do so to find plugins germane to your campus needs. Saves you having to recode or to pay someone to do this.

You can let students contribute content via blogs. This can help get a sense of community involvement by fostering an active feedback loop amongst them and the faculty.
Book rely's on plugins a little to much for me 24. September 2012
Von JASON E. WILLIS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I like the ideas and built the examples, took part of a weekend. So, it's a quick read and you will be able to implement quickly as well. My only critique stems from an opinion that the book examples rely quite a bit on plugins to provide functionality. This is fine but I was hoping for a more technical book to create the functionality outside of the main plugin "ScholarPress." When the plugins stop being supported, then keeping the functionality may be a challenge. As I reread the books descriptions, it's aim is for educators, so I shouldn't have expected programmatic solutions.
Rocket Theme Review 30. August 2012
Von cpfeifer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Wordpress for Education from Packt Publishing is a comprehensive guide for setting up a Wordpress site using multisite and social networking components. While the book has a primary focus aimed at educators wishing to create a course based website or manage a network for classroom students, the methods and software discussed in the book may be helpful to anyone wishing to have similar functionalities in a website of any nature.

The book is very unassuming in previous knowledge of Wordpress or web software and the explanations of set up, installation, configuration are very straight forward and easy to understand. If walks through all the steps necessary to get Wordpress installed with a multisite network as well as adding and managing various plugins.

Aside from the standard and commonly used Wordpress plugins, many education and classroom based plugins are discussed and walked through in detail. Common Wordpress plugins are presented with several options for commenting, contact forms, calendars and more. Many educational based plugins are walked through and discussed. Such as adding courses, quizzes, grading and other educational functionalities that would appeal to educators.

Several sections of the book are dedicated to Buddypress, a popular open source social network plugin for Wordpress. It's set up, configuration, features and educational applications are discussed along with it's relationship with several of the aforementioned plugins and educational extensions for Buddypress itself.

Later chapters of the book are aimed at website management. Common website maintenance tasks such as backups, increasing performance, security, and updating software are discussed and walked through in an easy to understand fashion.

Overall, Wordpress for Education is primarily for educators and educational based website administrators. It is well written and the guides and tips are very easy to understand. Educators will most certainly find this to be a helpful resource if using Wordpress for the first time. The book is very specific in it's educational focus, but the guides could provide insight for others wishing to create a similar Wordpress installation with any or all of the plugins and capabilities that are discussed.
An Excellent Book for Teachers of all Types 25. August 2012
Von Michael - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
WordPress for Education by Adam Scott is one of those rare books that fits a niche I didn't even know existed. I had never thought about the complexities of using WordPress in an educational environment before hearing the title of this work. Once I began to think about it and to explore what it meant to use a tool like WordPress within an educational environment, or for that matter to use it within any reasonably interactive learning arena, the need became clear.

While the author does cover the perfunctory topics of installing WordPress, getting a theme set up, and establishing users, he does not dwell on those areas. Thankfully. There are far too many excellent books that cover these tasks in depth. Best not to waste the meat of the book on those things. While the topics of security, backup, and optimization are touched on so the first time WordPress user knows they exist, the suggestion is obviously that those are topics for further reading.

Very quickly Scott gets down to business with plugins that will aid in education - such as those for generating bibliographies or for exporting your entire site as an electronic book. Even more important are the chapters on using multi-user WordPress, BuddyPress, and Open Courseware to develop a fully integrated electronic classroom environment. This can be anything from as simple as posting assignments online to as complex as letting students develop their own smaller sub-sites, creating discussion groups for interactive learning, and submitting and grading the final results.

Scott has a very easy and likable writing style. He has obviously used the products he is talking about and knows their details. He presents that information in the same way you would hope a good professor would, in a friendly yet authoritative manner. In WordPress for Education he presents the information you need to know while not pretending to be the be-all-end-all source, which is impossible because WordPress is a constantly changing and evolving platform.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is contemplating setting up an online education environment be it in primary education, secondary, or beyond. This also applies to businesses. We must not forget that education continues long after leaving the school building. Many of the techniques and tools in Scott's work would be excellent for implementation in employee training, religious education, vocational training, or other areas. Even civic clubs like writer's groups or any organization that has a teaching or testing process could benefit from at least a light read of the book.

Also note that, as is the case with all Packt Publishing books, the WordPress for Education is available in both paper and multiple electronic formats, so it is quite convenient to have with you in whatever form you prefer.
