A 360° Discussion of Foreign, National and Local Policy Issues

Internet University, Blue Hill Campus

I’ve decided to start evangelizing the web  more actively, and here’s my first experiment: a website that I built for Internet University (

Internet University, with its beautiful Blue Hill Campus in the Cloud, is announcing its first course. It’s an internet-based cooking course, created by  Harvard and offered through the learning site edX. If enough people in the Blue Hill area are interested then Internet U will set up some local, real life get-togethers or community-oriented web activities.

The course rolls out this week through edX and Internet U, but if you’re late to sign up, no worries. You can join until  the course ends and they take the course material down–which may be a long time.

To find out how I built the website, check my blog post, or wait for the new course.


  • Great Start – sites are fun and easy and powerful these days.
    Take a look at the link below as well for comparison.
    Have been using Weebly for 3+years and have 10 free sites for the same cost. SquareSpace only allows 1.
    Just paid for $71.80 for another 2 years for my Pro account.
    That’s $3/month. I got in early 🙂 and they protect my cost.

    I’m talking Internet and Broadband at the Library on 26 January 2017 at 7PM. Library Sponsored…

    • I’ll try and make the library event. I have a possible conflict.

      Have not tried Weebly, but used Wix. Powerful, but complex due to so many choices. The thing that I like about Google Sites is that it’s really simple, the builder is performant and so is the site. Plus Google hosted.

      Plus, free.

  • All of the sites listed in the reference have their Free aspect as well that includes design and many options. If you want your own domain it costs a small amount (15/yr approx) and the minor cost of a more robust host site is needed for businesses and aspects of a site people may want that would not be available for free.

    The Town of Blue Hill (which I host) has yet to get their own town email (i.e. and uses personal email and Time Warner… pretty crazy.

  • Is this the topic for the coming week?
