What I’ve learned from five years of WordPress at a public university

Subscribe to Community Blog updates

Over the last five years at Washington State University, we have built a single multi-network WordPress Multisite installation into the university's primary content management system. All six campus locations, 11 colleges and hundreds of departments between have at least some presence on WordPress.

In this talk I'll cover assumptions I had when starting in higher ed—and how many were wrong. I'll go through successes and failures—and what I would change the next time around. And I'll go through some of the specific tools that have been invaluable to us in building our platform. You'll walk away with a practical framework that can be applied to dozens, hundreds or thousands of sites.
