This course has four different sections: Build a blogDigi Society, Digi Citizen and ePlatforms. It’s easiest to do assignments in that order. In first section (Build a blog), you will build your own blog/web site by using the WordPress service. You can find instructions for that from Build a blog tab above. That blog/site will be your personal learning environment, where you share all of the assignments with teachers, students and the whole world. After you have created your blog, you can do the other assignments. – But before you go ahead, please read this page carefully.

You can start the course whenever you want. When you’re done everything, please send email to timo.sirvio@savonia.fi that your tasks on your blog are ready to be evaluated. You can leave your assignments before 24.10., 17.12., 13.3., 31.5. 31.8. Then you will get grades (pass/fail) within three weeks. For example, if you leave all of your assignments in the 13th of March, you will get grades in the 6th of April.
