*WPCampus events are not WordCamps and are not affiliated with the WordPress Foundation.
The WPCampus conference (and community) is the brainchild of Rachel Cherry, a web engineer with a passion for all things WordPress and higher education. She loves going to WordCamps but there was never content focused on the topics she wanted to discuss as a higher education web specialist. The idea for the conference all started with a tweet in August 2015 and has since formed into a widespread community of over 1000 members and 7 conferences.
Why Attend a WPCampus?
It is a pure source of education for all WordPress professionals engaged in higher education. The concept for WPCampus is an education-focused, non-profit event that will allow people to share and learn about WordPress in the world of Higher Education.
Much like online businesses or blogging, higher education is a world of its own with unique challenges, content, stakeholders, and target audiences.
The WPCampus community is more concerned with managing large-scale networks of faculty blogs, abiding with FERPA and accessibility regulations, and implementing tools to promote research data.
WPCampus members are using WordPress to power learning management systems, intranets, large university websites, and whatever else is needed to support their institution.
The world of higher ed is a great candidate for utilizing WordPress to its full potential, whether it’s using the powerful CMS to stretch limited resources or using its API capabilities to share information and break down silos.
