Use Cases

WolfWare WordPress is ideal for the following use cases:

  • Instructors want to deliver their class content through a page-based website with view access that is either public or controlled through WolfWare (enrolled students, designated users).
  • Instructors want a public site to advertise their course or provide basic information such as overview, syllabus and schedule.
  • Instructors would like students to create posts for a class blog.
  • Employees who already use WolfWare (such as for Moodle) for a class, training or resources would like a website that is publicly accessible or accessible only by the users in their WolfWare space.
