ATTENTION: We had to remove an old Google Analytics plugin.  Please check that Google Analytics is functioning correctly on your site.  You may need to activate the new Google Analytics plugin.  Please contact us at ecds [at] emory [dot] edu with any questions.

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

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.

To be able to create a Scholarblogs site, the content:

  • Must be directly related to a teaching or research activity at Emory
  • Must be sponsored by instructor (faculty, lecturer, staff, graduate student instructor) or research scientist currently employed by Emory.

To find out more about the policies for using ScholarBlogs, check out the Policies tab. To learn about how to create a ScholarBlogs site, read our Getting Started with ScholarBlogs Guide.

For support in using ScholarBlogs in research and teaching, contact the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS) at ecds [at] emory [dot] edu.
