Students in the Integrative Learning Project (ILP) work with WordPress to build their portfolios. According to WordPress, 34% of the web uses WordPress. It’s a skill worth learning!
Each semester, the ILP offers students a few new WordPress templates. If they take the course a second time, they must use a new template. The goal here is to give students the opportunity to play with WordPress and build their web design skills. Creating new templates also allows us to explore new themes as they become available and hone our own WordPress abilities.
Our current templates are listed below and all Wesleyan students, regardless of whether they are in the ILP, are welcome to use them. To access a template, you will need to:
- Sign up for a WesCreates account.
- Then choose a domain name.
- And then follow these WordPress installation instructions.
