WordPress Blogs for CFCC Faculty and Staff
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a web log program that allows users to create and manage their own blogs. Users can create and manage blog posts using a web based interface and see their content published instantly.
Who can use WordPress?
WordPress blogs are available to CFCC Faculty and Staff for use as their personal CFCC web pages. While each faculty or staff member controls the content of their blog they are still representing Cape Fear Community College to the public. Subject matter and content published to the WordPress blogs should be relevant and appropriate to Cape Fear Community College. It is also important to keep in mind that the CFCC Acceptable Use Policy for computers and technology applies to the WordPress blogs.
Why Use WordPress?
Because WordPress Rocks! It is also a great way to connect with students and colleagues. A WordPress blog can be used to supplement instructional material, journal professional development, support research or just blog about things that are interesting. Here are a few examples of how blogs are used at CFCC and other schools:
