Embedding Pinboard Widgets on this site

I’ve been messing around with Pinboard lately for social bookmarking and I’ve been really impressed with its archiving features and all the excellent iOS clients for it. I’ve also messed around with getting my bookmarks showing up on my domain! I’ve had some people ask exactly how I’ve integrated Pinboard with this site, so here’s what I’ve done. The finished product. At pinboard.in/resources you can find the Linkroll and Tag cloud widget, under Javascript Widgets....

digciz.jadin.me

This semester I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to teach a tutorial class with 10 honors students on Digital Citizenship. Here is my course site: digciz.jadin.me The course is best described as a small sampling of a few digital citizenship topics and a project where students design and build a website on Knight Domains for their own personal use. We meet once a week for 5 weeks, then we have a mid-semester check-in, then a end of semester website showcase!...

Open Domains Lab

This post is cross-listed from blog.knight.domains UPDATE We are no longer going to be holding this event on a regular basis. Instead I recommend you stop by Tech Bar to scratch your diy-website-building itch! We have a budding Domain of One’s Own project at St. Norbert College, and it has been exciting to see our pilot groups and Tech Bar students jump head-first into building their own slices of the web and taking control of their digital identities!...

The Fastest Path to a Single Page Website

This is a post I put together to show the ITS Tech Bar Students I work with how to quickly put a static page up on their domain. I am assuming almost no prior knowledge of HTML, CSS, or cPanel. When we are finished you will have a page that looks like this: demo.jadin.me Creating index.html First, we will make an index.html file. The quickest way to do this for now will be to use cPanel’s File Manager tool....
