ITS provides WordPress installations to Pomona faculty who wish to have a completely public website for their course which fully utilizes the social nature of technologies such as blogs. ITS will install and manage WordPress on our web server, and the faculty member will take responsibility for day to day administration of the software, including managing student access, monitoring software functions, and supervising content on the site.

Faculty members, if you’re interested in managing a public website for your course or for a research project, please contact the Pomona ITS Service Desk:

WordPress Quickstart for Research Pages

Though this is addressed at faculty creating their own personal website, it is a useful overview of the basic functions of WordPress for any website, including public course blogs.
