I’ve been a fan of Display Posts since the days of straight Non-Programistan. Despite the fact that I can write my own stuff from scratch, Display Posts still comes in handy all the time. The following are just two little tricks used in a recent course site. I’m just skimming the surface of the …
Another fan of display-posts-shortcode. My favourite plugin on Glow Blogs.
I used this video in class as a writing stimulus. I also watched a few time in preparation.
I’ve had got a lump in my throat every time I’ve watched. The class liked it too. HT @LiteracyShed.

Seven years of open | Open Scotland
Over the course of this month, I hope to explore activity in Scotland related to some of these lesser-blogged-about areas of open practice. Given my own role in widening access with the Open University in Scotland, you can expect to hear about projects I’ve been involved with.
