Project Sites on UR Blogs

 

This series of videos provides instructions for students and faculty who have the administrator role on UR Blogs and are building project sites. To view all tutorial videos, visit the UR Blogs showcase on Vimeo.

If you are completing a project for a course and need help finding the link to your course’s central site, check your syllabus, contact the instructor, or look in the Course Sites list on the UR Blogs home page. (Individual student project sites are not included in this list.) Additional tutorials can be found on the UR Blogs Get Help page. For in-person technical assistance, please contact the Technology Learning Center. We recommend making an appointment with a TLC consultant for the best experience.
