Tic Tac Tech: A Tutorial On How To Enable Comments On Your Blog

Hi aspiring techies, Im making this post in order to help you enable comments on your blog, if you so chose. This will allow people who want to comment on your content to do so uninhibited. To allow this, first you will go to your dashboard after logging into your site@gsu.edu. Next you will scroll down the menu bar on the left hand page of your screen until you reach settings; click on “settings”. After clicking settings an additional drop down menu bar should appear with “Discussion” as an option. Click “Discussion” and scroll down until you see “Enable Comments” with the description that now anyone can comment on your blog without having tone prepared by you.

How will your final grade be calculated?

You will earn points for just about everything you do in this course–attending class, completing in-class work, studying, major projects, contributing material to our collaborative archive about the built environment in Atlanta, etc., etc. You can also lose points for missing class, failing to turn in a project on time, coming to class unprepared, etc., etc. At the end of the course, if you have completed all four of the major projects (reading summaries, annotated bibliography, built environment descriptions, and built environment analysis), your letter grade will be assigned based on the points you’ve earned.

What is the “submission form” and how do you use it?

we use this form to submit pretty much everything for which you’d like to earn points–study group reflections, major project drafts, contributions to our Atlanta built environment archive, etc. We will keep track of when you come to see us during office hours for individual or group conferences and when you complete exercises in Writer’s Help.
