Blogging Day 2023: Sharing Knowledge

November 13th, 2023 | by

Today we are once again celebrating Blogging Day, an opportunity to celebrate the digital sharing of knowledge. Blogging is much more than simply writing texts – it is a bridge that connects us with our community.

Since 2015, we have been providing you with information about our IT services and more on the IT Center Blog. The RDM-Blog also offers you exciting information on the topic of research data management. This year, the IT Center Changes Blog has been added to the IT Center’s blog repertoire. Would you like to get more specific insights into our blog instances? Then this post is just right for you!


Sharing Knowledge, Strengthening Community

The IT Center at RWTH Aachen University actively pursues blogging activities. In addition to our online presence in social media presence on Facebook, LinkedIn, X, and Youtube, we provide you with articles on various topics three times a week on the IT Center Blog.

This year, we’ve shared a wealth of posts ranging from technical topics and developments to best practices and feel-good tricks. We’ve provided insights into our work to support our community in their digital endeavors. You can find a few examples below:

The posts not only served as a source of information, but also as a starting point for discussions and the exchange of ideas. You will find that you can comment on our posts and read them in both German and English.


Diverse Blog Landscape

In addition to the IT Center Blog, you can also browse through our specialized blogs. In the RDM-Blog, the group Marketing & Event Management together with the RDM Team share valuable insights and advice in the field of research data management.

Research data management is about the systematic handling of research data such as source research, experiments, or surveys. With the help of the blog, you will be informed about current developments, upcoming events at RWTH Aachen University and other institutions as well as RWTH best practices and use cases.

The IT Center Changes gives you a look behind the scenes. So-called changes are changes to a service or to the IT infrastructure. The specialist departments are currently reporting on such changes and updates in the services RWTH-HPC, E-Mail, and Gigamove on this blog. You will be informed here about software or version updates, for example.


Your Voice Counts

Blogging Day reminds us how important your perspectives are. What would you like to read? What topics are you most interested in? We encourage you to share your thoughts in the comments. Your suggestions will also influence the content we share in the future.

Let’s celebrate blogging together as a tool that spreads knowledge, creates connections and strengthens communities!
