During the 2016-2017 academic year, the department of Spanish and Portuguese at Princeton University debuted an online textbook entitled Aprendo. This homegrown, WordPress-based textbook, built by the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning, is currently being used by approximately 350 students and instructors in 27 Spanish-language classes covering introductory and intensive introductory Spanish. The Aprendo website hosts the textbook content, and serves as an interactive, online workbook in which student answers are saved and re-populated when the student returns to the site.
In this session, Aprendo’s developer offers an overview of educational technology support and the important role of WordPress at Princeton University, describes the inspiration and collaborative process that led to Aprendo, and outlines the development and deployment challenges that ultimately strengthened the platform.
