List of other contributed modules and themes available on student sites for individual projects (these are all modules except as noted):

Student site set-up - if you want to teach a similar class

  1. Create a new domain for the class, and install Drupal there.
  2. Make a subdomain for each student, and make the subdomain's document root the same as your domain's main document root.
  3. Make a database for each student, and note the user name and password -- or use a shared database user name and password for the entire class and assign this database user name to each student.
  4. Make a sites folder for each student subdomain.
  5. Make sure the sites subfolder and the settings.php file within it are writable by the web server.
