WORDPRESS. You all know I’ve been a fan of this blogging platform for quite sometime. WordPress released a while back a new version of its platform called WordPress MU . WordPress allows for hundreds of WordPress blogs to be run off of the same sever installation. From an administrative end this makes life much easier as you only have to upload one copy of a theme, one plug-in, etc. if you want to make it available for all of your users. Thinking from a University stand-point, it allows a department to offer “websites” to its students, faculty, and staff with great ease. Recently one of my co-workers, John Lemasney, made a pitch to the IT Dept. at Rider University on WordPress MU and its benefits to a University such as Rider. He did a wonderful job presenting it and it can be viewed here.
