Additional thoughts

It's my first day back at work and still wading through email, sorry I missed the meeting.

Took a look at the OCL4Ed published in Wordpress - looks good. The wiki activity boxes came across perfectly, did you have to tweak them much post the export/import?

FYI our Wordpress installation is by Campus Press (used to be called Edublogs) and they're great. I'm sure UOW would not mind hosting the odd blog for OERu - presuming we could take an XML export of your finished product - if it's helpful.

Regards, Sarah

Hi Sarah, welcome back and happy new year! No tweaking of the pedagogical boxes was necessary after the import. Once we have the WP theme implemented, the pedagogical activity boxes will mirror the theme. Yes, with the new WP theme, it would be possible for UOW to host courses on your WP install. --Mackiwg (talk) 01:51, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
