Academic Commons

What is it?

The Yale Academic Commons is an online academic community built on WordPress. Yale ITS began offering WordPress sites for courses in the summer of 2006, when a site was made by students studying Modern British Architecture in London. Over 100 courses a year now use Academic Commons, as do a number of student and research groups. It is also a platform for publishing digital scholarly projects.

Who can use it?

Academic Commons is for students, faculty, and staff looking for a user-friendly way to collaborate, communicate, and publish on the Internet.
