There have been some issues with Quill and other services advising that the WordPress Micropub endpoint did not return a Location header.

I can subscribe to his feed of posts for the class (or an aggregated one he’s made–sometimes known as a planet) and use the feed reader of choice to consume the content (and that of my peers’) at my own pace to work my way through the course.
This is a lot closer to what I think online pedagogy or even the use of a Domain of One’s Own in an educational setting could and should be. I hope other educators might follow suit based on our examples. As an added bonus, if you’d like to try it out, Greg’s three week course is, in fact, an open course for using IndieWeb and DoOO technologies for teaching. It’s just started, so I hope more will join us.
He’s focusing primarily on using WordPress as the platform of choice in the course, but one could just as easily use other Webmention enabled CMSes like WithKnown, Grav, Perch, Drupal, et al. to participate.
Here is a video describing the power of webmentions in #edu5222. My students are amazed that they do all their learning from their own domain but their replies show up on each other’s post and our rss feed magically slurps up everything they write.
One thing to note you don’t need a reply post-kind for your webmention to work. You can just mention somebody’s url in you post or or link to a specific page or post on their website in any post-kind at it will work as well.

I tried to find a photo of a pig without the ear tags, as I suspect it would have been happier to know it’s not being tracked. I suspect it’s difficult not to be tracked, so we’ll have to live with it at least temporarily…
