If you want to use Showcase as a course assignment for your course, think about the type of content you would like to have your students write, and how could the blog assignment be useful to the students. It’s also useful to think how the blog assignment will affect the course grade, if it’s a mandatory part of the course.

It’s also possible and encouraged to start a personal blog for any student, employee or alumni. Just think about the type of content you would like to publish, and you should also think about the name you want for your blog. It’s also useful to draft a loose publishing schedule and try to maintain it as well as possible.

Registering a new user account requires contacting Laurea’s web services to make approving new user accounts easier. Once you’ve created your user account, send an e-mail to with the following information:

  • Blog name
  • Type of content in the blog
  • Do you have any previous information about writing blogs?
  • Have you received the written instruction to Showcase (powerpoint -file)

After a review, your user account will be approved and you can start publishing in your blog.
