What is this website?
FieldPress.ca is a demonstration website for displaying and testing the capabilities of the FieldPress plugin for WordPress. The FieldPress plugin allows instructors to create and manage field trips for their students. FieldPress is an open educational resource (OER) that was created by Open Geography at the University of British Columbia in Canada.

If you would like to learn more about managing field trips and how to install the plugin on your own installation of WordPress you can use the above links. This plugin will work only on your own installation of WordPress not on blogs maintained on WordPress.com. Once we move out of beta, our plugin will be available in the WordPress plugin repository.
Note: Our homepage uses the Slider Revolution plugin, which is not part of the FieldPress package as you are free to design your own homepage on your website.
