Type: Streaming Resource

Description: WordPress in the Classroom: Multisite shows educators how to create and manage multiple WordPress sites from a single WordPress install by enabling the hidden Multisite features of WordPress. As an intermediate-level course, it assumes a basic working knowledge of WordPress, including WordPress plugins, themes, and templates. The techniques can be used for managing any type of network of WordPress sites, but author Chris Mattia concentrates on two scenarios: student-run blogs and websites for each class or section you teach. He also helps you set up a template that fits your teaching style, manage users across multiple sites, and leverage smart plugins such as MultiSite Clone Duplicator. These tips will help you streamline the technology, so you can spend more time engaging with students.
