Hosting


For first run, I’ve chosen not to go with edX, coursera, or the like but instead host locally. This is a trial run, so I think it’s premature to deal with the overhead that may come with having an official University course run through one of those services. I also don’t like how most free courses don’t seem accessible there until you register; maybe this is an optional setting, but I’d prefer for people to be able to stumble into a lecture or exercise through a web search. I’m thus doing a WordPress site for now. I’ve explored some plugins for learning management systems in WordPress but haven’t found something I want to commit to yet.
