Introduction to Blogging at UVM
This is the first video in a series of videos we’ve developed to help get you started with blogging at UVM. WordPress is the most popular blogging software out there and UVM’s multi-site installation means that anyone with a UVM NetID can set up a blog or even multiple blogs.
Faculty have set up blogs so students can contribute posts and discuss ideas within a class. Some students blog on their own, but others set up blogs to fulfill assignments, or to post reflections or creative work.
Staff use it for tracking project development, or to post opinions or creative writing. And many departments or programs use WP to present topical news and information, for community outreach, or to share ideas, and invite discussion.
