Welcome to ACU Blogs


blogbuttonACU Blogs grew out of a desire among faculty at Abilene Christian to make course sites easier to update and more accessible from mobile devices.

In the fall of 2009 WordPress became the blog solution for class blogs and campus blogs helping departments and groups communicate more easily with students and alumni.

In 2011 student portfolio blogs were added to provide instant publishing and archiving of student work over multiple semesters.
