UW-Green Bay utilizes WordPress to power blogs, newsfeeds and custom sites.
WordPress can be used for a variety of projects:
- In courses to encourage discussion and debate (take a look at Dr. Chen’s ENV 102 Blog and Dr. Morgans’ DJS 470 Blog for examples)
- A way to keep everyone on campus informed on what’s new in your department (take a look at the Library Blog)
- Student assignments
- Publishing new ideas and areas of research to a much wider audience (see how Dr. Martin showcases his research)
- Newsletters, or a faculty group blog to keep everyone up to date on departmental matters (see how the Professional Program in Nursing and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences integrates one with their current site)
- Newsfeeds for publishing information that can be used anywhere (check out how Dining Services and HR Connect use WordPress as a centralized way to push updates to others sites across campus)
- Shared governance information (check out the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business Curriculum Committee)
- Sites requiring custom designs or themes (Check out the new CATL Blog, The Sheepshead Review and the Weidner Center Site to see the possibilities)
To setup a blog you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following information:
- Who will be responsible
- Desired URL
- All will start with blog.uwgb.edu (e.g. blog.uwgb.edu/yoursiteurl )
Once your request is approved we will setup your site and you will receive instructions on how to customize it and get it going.
