Uses for UWL CampusPress

UWL CampusPress can be used by students independently, for example for a private, reflective learning journal or with you for a specific learning activity such as:

  • website-based assessments
  • portfolios of work
  • blogging
  • a record of CPD

Students are able to export their CampusPress sites at the end of their studies, allowing for continuous use throughout their careers as CampusPress is based on the popular website tool WordPress.
