Interested in blogging? Join our CampusPress Pilot


The Digital Education Service is hosting a pilot of CampusPress and we’d like staff to get involved.

CampusPress is a tool for creating blogs and websites for learning and teaching purposes. Powered by WordPress, staff and students can create and manage their blogs using a range of accessible themes. For assessment purposes, a tutor can create a blog for a class or group. Students can then create and attach a blog, giving the tutor access to the attached blogs. 

The pilot will run for two years until December 2025.

Interested? Here’s how you can take part:

CampusPress can be accessed by all staff and students at Leeds by going directly to and logging in via "Use my school ID", using your usual username and password. By logging in and using CampusPress you will automatically be taking part in the pilot, and feedback will be collated directly from users during the two years.

If you want more information on the pilot or have a use case you’d like to discuss, log in to the IT website and search: Request Something. You’ll then be taken to a form where you can provide your details and ask any questions.
