About Create@USQ

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

The Create@USQ Project

Since Semester 1, 2022, Create@USQ has continued to rollout as a project providing WordPress websites to students and staff.

The main focus is on student portfolios through batch processing sites based on a discipline-designed template. We are also planning to establish self- selection of sites for interested users including academics and research groups requiring an online presence to share and collaborate with others within and beyond USQ.

Background – 2021

During Semester 1 and 2, 2021 a student portfolio pilot took place with select courses, as listed below.

A course-based template was created in consultation with academics and course examiners in the pilot to provide all students in that course with a suitable basic website. Using the template student then were encouraged to customise their portfolio with images, artefacts and information.
