The DMU Commons or Our DMU is a blogging platform and social network that links together staff and students from across De Montfort University into one online community. The Commons is a shared place for the production of learning and research that is personally and socially transformative – connecting the social world of DMU to the resources, artifacts, networks and conversations that emerge from our thinking.
