Request a WordPress Blog!

WordPress is an open-source Web application designed for creating blogs with both static and dynamic pages. ECU has its own WordPress server, and space is available to faculty, staff, students, departments and groups for personal blogs or academic sites.

WordPress can be used in courses to provide interaction between faculty and students. It can also be used with departments and groups to share information and updates on projects.

The following is a list of examples of how WordPress can enhance your academic course.

  • Create static websites.
  • Create interactive websites.
  • House tutorials and instructions.
  • Update groups.
  • Make the blog public (available to everyone) or restricted to a group.
  • Use as a conference site.

  • Any Plugins Used to Provide Functionality are Actively Updated with a Large User Base
  • Doesn’t completely overhaul base WordPress Functionality
