MyPAD: My Personal and Academic Development

Welcome to MyPAD

MyPAD is your personal and academic blogging tool. To login to MyPAD and start blogging, simply click on the Log In button on the top left corner of the screen and enter your University username and password.

The first time you log in a blog will be automatically be created for you, but you can create more blogs if you want to. By default your blog is completely private, but you can add subscribers to your blog or you can open it up to the public if you want.

For help and support using MyPAD please use the links on the right. If you’ve used Edublogs or WordPress before you’ll probably know what to do already. However, if you’re new to blogging we recommend taking a look at the Getting Started Guide. Once you’re familiar with the basics, you can take a look at the Complete User Guide to get an idea of all the things you can do with your blog.

Free Online Training

An excellent place to start for any MyPAD users who are not already familiar with WordPress, is the Essential WordPress course available on the Four I’s website. You’ll need to register with Four I’s if you want to take the course, however the course is completely free.
