WordPress is an open-source blog tool that is easy to use and customize. An Emory-supported instance of WordPress (ScholarBlogs) is now available for those who intend to use the technology for teaching and research. It offers a platform for public and private blogs and web pages capable of displaying text, images, and video. Users can also apply themes to customize their blogs and utilize select plugins that provide additional functionality.

Undergraduate Students:  Please login to the ScholarBlogs system above so that your professor can add you to the class blog.
