WPTavern: WPCampus 2018 Videos Are Now Available to Watch

WPCampus 2018 was held July 12-14, 2018, at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Educators, staff, and those in higher-education gathered to learn how WordPress can be and is used in higher-education environments.

If you couldn’t attend in person or watch the live stream, you can now watch all of the sessions for free. Visit the event’s schedule page and click the Watch Session button. Alternatively, you can click on a session’s title to read a brief description and then watch the embedded video.

Videos are hosted on YouTube which makes it easy to share and embed them. There are also links to view the presenter’s slides.

If you have time, I recommend watching GutenReady for the Gutenpocalypse by Brian DeConinck and Jennifer McFarland who work at North Carolina State University in the Information and Technology Department.

In this presentation, the duo explain what they’re doing to get staff, students, and campus sites prepared for Gutenberg.

In addition to the presentation above, I also recommend listening to episode 324 of WordPress Weekly where McFarland describes their experience so far in transitioning sites to Gutenberg, building custom blocks, and discussing what the future of themes might be like once the project is merged into WordPress.

WPCampus organizers are in the beginning stages of planning next year’s event.
