How to use U.OSU to share your work on the web

U.OSU website

U.OSU is the university’s easy-to-use professional website platform. Share your work and explore sites from throughout the Ohio State community. The “U” in the name is for the work you do at this university.

U.OSU provides web space to support professional and educational activities at The Ohio State University. Students, faculty and staff use it to share independent work, host course assignments, enhance project visibility, communicate within groups and represent their organizations.

To get started, go to u.osu.edu and sign up. This resource is provided and supported through the Office of Distance Education and eLearning.

Following are some examples of personal professional sites, from across the university, that you might want to review before getting started.
