About Create@UniSQ

Create@UniSQ is an easy-to-use portfolio, blogging and web publishing service for UniSQ Staff and students. It uses the platform WordPress powered and supported by CampusPress.

The Create@UniSQ Project

The Create@UniSQ  project has two main areas of focus:

  • Batch-processed student portfolios for curriculum and program purposes using a discipline-designed template to support personal branding, assessment and employability
  • Self-serve option for staff and students to access a WordPress site supporting academics, research groups, individual or groups who may require an online presence to share and/or collaborate with others within and beyond UniSQ.


Background – 2021

During Semester 1 and 2, 2021 a student portfolio pilot took place with select courses. A discipline-based template was created in consultation with academics and course examiners in the pilot. Starting with the batch-processed template students were encouraged to customise their portfolio with images, artefacts and information.
