How do I access a student's WordPress blog as an instructor?

If an instructor or TA has already created WordPress blogs for their students (link to instructions), they can view a list of all student blogs and open a link to each one.

Go to WordPress.

Select WordPress from the Course Navigation Menu.

Open My Sites.

Select the My Sites button in the WordPress toolbar.

Select Show Student Blogs.

  1. Find the title of the WordPress blog for the course. By default, the name of the UVACanvas course is the title given to the course's WordPress site when the tool is first accessed by an instructor.
  2. Select the associated Show Student Blogs link.

View the Student List.

The Student List page displays a table of each student's computing ID (Student ID), Name, and their WordPress Site URL for the course.

Caution: By default, the Student List page is hidden from students and only available to instructors and TAs. If the page is published, it would no longer be automatically updated as students join the course or activate their UVA WordPress accounts. A new hidden Student List page would be created with the updated list of students.

Note: If you have created/updated student blogs and an enrolled student's name does not appear, the student may need to open the WordPress tool from UVACanvas to create their UVA WordPress account.

To open a student's blog, select the link in the Site URL column to the right of the student's name. For example, /WP0-4B2WM0cad2db62d8becdcf9d8163aef3faab7db46398e1_ath2h-student-1/.
