We were happy to see a great example of how to make U.OSU work for you on the Office of Distance Education and eLearning News this week.
“When the College of Arts and Sciences and ODEE teamed up to launch the U.OSU pilot in September 2013, Denise Ellsworth, Program Director for Honey Bee and Native Pollinator Education, the transformative platform could enhance how The Bee Lab functions online.
The Bee Lab, a research and education facility on the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center campus in Wooster, is a great example of how Ohio State branding and U.OSU customization can create a comprehensive yet navigable site.”
Whether your site serves as a resource, a blog (or both like The Bee Lab!), a forum or a student org homepage, U.OSU is all about what YOU do at the university. Read more from Denise’s interview and browse our Featured Sites to get inspired.
U.OSU continues to gain momentum as the university’s supported web platform. Whether you need a site to house resources for your student group or want to start a class blog, the easy-to-use WordPress platform has features to meet many needs.
We compiled recent articles and posts that highlight site benefits, tips for creating forms, text widget superpowers, and a collection of great examples from across Ohio State.
Two U.OSU bloggers are up for 10th Edition EduBlog Awards.
Research Scientist Jay Zagorsky is a finalist in the Best New Blog Category.
Wayne Carlson, vice provost and dean of Undergraduate Education, was selected as a Best Administrator Blog Finalist.
U.OSU officially launches today as Ohio State’s professional website platform. With the university-wide roll out, we’re celebrating new enhancements provided for students, faculty and staff to develop their own authentic web presence with our service.
