To participate fully in this course, you will need:
- A blog running on your own domain. If you don’t have your own domain and are a BYU student, go to BYU’s Domain of One’s Own site to get started. If you are not a BYU student, I highly recommend setting up your blog at Reclaim Hosting, where I host my own blog Iterating Toward Openness.
- A Twitter account.
- You’ll also likely want an account on a video sharing service, like YouTube or Vimeo, an infographic making service like Canva or Piktochart, and other services for creating and sharing media.
If you need help setting up your domain and blog, or any of these other accounts, please begin by searching Google for the service and the word “tutorial” (for example, search for “twitter tutorial”). The good folks at Reclaim Hosting are wizards who provide the best support for blog hosting anywhere and they will also be a great resource. If you need additional support, please grab me after class or send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
