Blogs @ NTU
One Platform, Many Possibilities
What is blogs@NTU?
blogs@NTU is a service by OIKLS to provide a campus-wide blogging and publishing platform for the Nanyang Technological University community.
Blogs can be used for a multitude of purposes – disseminate and showcase your research, provide engaging learning opportunities, promote programmes or events, interact with a global community, and countless other possibilities.
Faculty, students and administrative staff can request for a blog to support their teaching, research, marketing or community-building activities.
By leveraging on the popular WordPress platform, it is easy for a user to start a blog. The library provides support to bring users up to speed with the latest blog features and trends in social media. Obviously for novices to blogging, this service could help them cut down learning time in building their blogs so that they can focus on what they want to achieve through a blog.
As the open source blogging platform continues to evolve over time, librarians can advise bloggers on the latest relevant feature that can enhance their blogs. Furthermore, librarians have skills in organising information which can help bloggers to structure their content better or even provide links to connect to content provided by the library.

I asked students for feedback about the blog this year and all of them absolutely LOVE it. They say it’s so much easier for them to find the material that they need because it’s all in one spot.
