St. Edward’s University offers several platforms for creating a web presence.

Would you like to publish a website or blog for your class? Would you like your students to journal, blog or create online content? We have several options available.
  • SEU Sites is a WordPress platform that can be used for websites, blogs or e-portfolios. Sites provides tested themes and plug-ins using WordPress, and requires little or no knowledge of HTML and CSS to manage a site. If you're interested, check out our guide to getting started with SEU Sites
  • SEU Create is a complete web-hosting service that enables you to create sites using HTML/CSS, PHP, Python and databases. Users should feel comfortable in a complex web-hosting environment. If you're interested, check out our guide to getting started with Create
  • Institutional Repository (IR) is a resource provided by Munday Library for faculty projects that require the collection of data or extensive online research. 
  • Canvas is used primarily for courses, but it is possible to use it for committees, groups or other special purposes.
  • Posts on www.stedwards.edu are intended to provide space for blog posts time-based information the site does not otherwise support. This feature is available to those who are editors or authors for their site.
  • Faculty profiles on the main St. Edward's website are intended to provide space for faculty members to showcase their professional and academic career, as well as highlight unique achievements.
We've outlined some general uses and which tool we recommend for each in the chart below. There are exceptions to every rule, of course, and if you have questions or ideas, we encourage you to submit a support request
