Multi-User (Network/Multisite ) in Higher Education

Does what you need to do fall outside of what an LMS (learning management system) can do to help your faculty or staff? Do you not need a whole-blow CMS (content management system) to solve all of your institution’s communication needs at this particular moment? This talk will show you how Bowdoin College has used WordPress to fill medium-scale needs in higher education – helping faculty quickly build nible sites for courses, photo-blogs for trips, image galleries for visual arts courses, student project microsites, faculty research projects, and student clubs sites, to name a few uses. Will get you started and show you some of the different ways we have used the tools – including plugins, themes, and user authentication.
