There has been a lot interest in the idea of using WordPress to provide innovative digital spaces to support our learning and teaching. We’re currently in the process of developing a pilot to test such a service using CampusPress, the company behind the popular EduBlogs. This pilot will explore the viability of using WordPress in various roles including:
- Online learning spaces (as a supplement to My Dundee)
- Customisable e-portfolios for students.
- Information portals for schools, disciplines and others to better communicate with their audience.
- Blogs to support the sharing of knowledge, experience and good practice across our community.
Our main goal of this initial pilot is to examine the possibilities WordPress could provide as well as explore the practical implications of scaling up such a provision.
