ISUComm ePortfolios are built on WordPress, one of the most powerful and easy to use open source content management systems


ISUComm ePortfolios is built on the WordPress open source content management platform. The platform is easy to use and provides you with a lot of flexibility in creating your personal site. WordPress also has a large community of users that continues to improve the CMS and offer support.


As you learn how to use your ePortfolio you may find it helpful to see how to use it. Iowa State University offers students access to lynda.com's extensive video tutorials. Here we have added a direct link to WordPress essential training. Get to know your ePortfolio even more.


Your ePortfolio is secured through our custom privacy plugin. As you develop your site, only you and your instructor will have access to view your work. However, the exciting part about your ePortfolio is that it is yours! Contact your instructor or a member of the OLT if you want to showcase your work to the world.


We are a group of graduate students committed to developing multimodal technologies for ISUComm Courses. Our passion is helping students navigate their ePortfolios and create a personal website the way you want

Greetings, all. I'm the current Assistant Director of the Online Learning Team (meaning I've been on the team longest), and I am a 4th year PhD candidate in Rhetoric and Professional Communication. When I'm not helping out with this great crew, I'm teaching English 314, writing my dissertation, working on the academic job hunt, spending time with my family, or playing video games or Dungeons and Dragons. I'm happy to help out with any technology/pedagogy concerns you might have.
