The opportunity to keep public logs in the university’s blog service using the WordPress platform.

Service description

The blog service is a service for the administration and publication of blog-format web sites in the WordPress publication system. Blogs can be set up by anyone at the university, and access rights to individual sites can be granted to other users within the university. Pictures can be inserted on the sites, and embedding videos and other media is also possible. The blog service provides the opportunity to publish sites using the university’s theme. The blog service can be used for the administration and publication of sites in Finnish, Swedish and English.
