WordPress

Self-publishing for faculty & staff

WordPress is an open source content management system. Originally built for blogging, WordPress has since evolved into one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) on the web. CTET can supply and support RRU faculty and staff with their own WordPress site, for example: faculty research sites, Community of Practice sites, etc.
