Cara Membuat dan Memanfaatkan Blog untuk Tugas Bahasa Inggris

Hello my blog readers, especially the students of Universitas Tanjungpura Academic Year 2017/2018. 

Dalam rangka mengurangi penggunaan kertas untuk mengumpulkan tugas terstruktur, maka Miss Dini mendayagunakan media Blog/Weblog sebagai wadah untuk para mahasiswa mengumpulkan tugas mata kuliah Bahasa Inggris. Selain mendukung gerakan Go Green, memposting tugas ke blog pribadi juga efektif bagi para mahasiswa agar dapat saling berbagi ide, mengekspresikan opini, serta memperkaya perspektif mengenai topik-topik yang telah ditentukan

Selain itu, Weblog juga bermanfaat sebagai online portfolio yang bersifat jangka panjang (asalkan halaman atau postingan blog tidak dihapus), sehingga tulisan-tulisan yang berisi ide, ilmu, maupun opini mahasiswa dapat tersimpan dengan baik dan dibaca oleh para warganet. Bukan tidak mungkin, tulisan-tulisan kita dapat menjadi sumber inspirasi dan motivasi untuk banyak orang.

Sayangnya, tidak semua mahasiswa mengetahui apa itu Weblog, dan bagaimana cara membuat blog pribadi. Untuk itu, berikut ini beberapa langkah sederhana membuat dan memanfaatkan blog untuk keperluan memposting tugas mata kuliah Bahasa Inggris.

Sebelum mulai membuat blog, harap diingat bahwa alamat blog sebaiknya tidak berganti-ganti dengan alasan apapun. Untuk itu, seluruh mahasiswa harus bertanggung jawab dengan blog masing-masing, mulai dari alamat url blog, password, dan isi postingan. Perubahan alamat blog akan menghambat proses penerbitan nilai yang bersangkutan di SIAKAD Untan.
