blog post image for isucomm

Expanding networks to meet user needs

In 2016, ISUComm Sites transitioned to three separate domains all on the same WordPress platform


Continuing the initial mission of Sites, ePortfolios is a dedicated network for ISUcomm Foundation courses (English 150/250). First year composition students develop private eportfolios.


Seeing a growing need for students, graduate assistants, and even faculty to create professional sites, the OLT created a network with customizable privacy settings for public sites.


Teachers value collaboration, and the flexibility of ISUComm's ePlatforms allows instructors to customize sites to be specifically tailored to their course goals and student outcomes.
