Interested in using a blogging tool in your learning and teaching? Join our CampusPress pilot


The Digital Education Service is hosting a pilot of blogging tool CampusPress and we’d like all staff to get involved. We’d particularly like to hear from academic staff who’d like to use blogging within a taught module, either as part of an assessment or within a separate learning activity. The pilot will run until October 2025.

CampusPress brings a range of benefits which include:

  • A new activity or assessment option for academic staff to consider as part of their learning and teaching
  • Supporting skills development in students through exposure to the WordPress platform
  • Encouraging reflective practice by using the tool as a private journal or CPD record
  • Supporting academic blogging, ideas exchange and dissemination.

Staff and Student CampusPress Guides

Take a look at our CampusPress Guides for staff and students to understand how both you and your students might use the tool. You can also access community guidelines for blogging which should be followed by all staff and students when creating either a blog or podcast using systems provided by the University.

Interested? Here’s how you can take part:

CampusPress can be accessed by all staff and students at Leeds by going directly to, clicking Log In 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.
