Form use and GDPR

Please also note, that if you choose to create and use forms to collect data on your blog, it is your responsibility to ensure that it complies with the GDPR regulations. This means that you need to consider data retention schedules, a privacy notice, the nature of the data you are collecting and your legal basis for collecting and processing this data. You can read more about GDPR on Staffcentral. If you are in any doubt about compliance do not put your form live without consulting with our Data Protection Officer.

If you plan on using blogs as a part of a student assessment, please see our guidance page here: Assessment Guidance when utilising blogs

Please read the Edublogs User Guide for further instruction on how to use WordPress. It covers pretty much everything you’ll need to know to get started.
