Web Design and Digital Scholarship Support
Web Design with WordPress
The WordPress platform has evolved considerably over the last 15 years. Initially conceived as an open-source blogging platform it has now become one of the most powerful and widely used web design tools used on the Internet. It is estimated that approximately one-third of all websites are built using WordPress. Not only is it an effective and affordable tool for building a web presence, it is also a useful skill in and of itself.
Digital Scholarship Support
Digital scholarship takes many shapes, encompassing new forms of collaboration and publication as well as new methods for visualizing and analyzing data. LEDS supports faculty and students in these endeavors, as they experiment and create, both in the classroom and beyond. We offer a range of web publishing and content creation solutions
