What is Buffs Create
Buffs Create gives us the opportunity to take responsibility for a digital space where we can have a voice and presence all our own.
Why it Matters
What it really is
- You’ll register a personalized sub-domain name associated with an online web space over which you’ll have control. You might share academic projects, personal websites or blogs,professional portfolios, cool creations, almost anything.
- Through reflection and self-expression, you’ll practice essential digital and information literacies, explore digital tools, reflect and connect your learning, and cultivate a digital identity all your own.
- You’ll have access to a number of open applications such as wordpress, drupal, omeka, scalar, or media wiki.
- At the time of graduation, you may choose to take that work with you and purchase your own domain.
What it includes
Applications available WordPress, Omeka, Scalar, Joomla, Drupal, MediaWiki, and Mahara, among others.

What it excludes
The service will not be offered to department or non-individual accounts, nor for storage intense digital projects. It is also not currently available to student groups.
