At the heart of this course is your web site…the one you now own. Which is about a lot more than just “blogging” (if you consider it that at all).
Understand the idea of, behind, and driven by, “A Domain of One’s Own”
What is “A Domain of One’s Own?” How does the idea differ from just having a site on a service liked WordPress.com? What does it mean to “own” your space on today’s internet where, at some point, you have to engage in services from other providers? How does the idea fit in with education? Why do you think your instructor is adopting (most of) the model for this class?
