Resources for Educators
- Offer to simply put guest speakers on a Question & Answer panel instead of asking them to teach a full lecture—it means no prep for them, and makes them far more likely to offer their time.
- Focus on free, practical tools. Facebook and Twitter are both free, as are several blog platforms.
- Encourage students to register their own domain. [At the time of writing] it’s about $15 for a year. Godaddy and Dotster are inexpensive and reliable.
- Website hosting can be only a few dollars a month. Hostgator is inexpensive, and works great for most students.
- Direct students to people like Chris Kresser and Kat at LMT or Bust, both of whom started blogs as students, and as a result already had an audience when they graduated.
