Introduction to Workplace

Westminster has designed a unique, private edition of Facebook for our online learning community. We have taken Workplace by Facebook and converted it into a higher education platform for our program. The result is an easy-to-use platform and amazing mobile apps, all private and entirely separate from the regular Facebook site.

All faculty, students, and staff meet here to connect with peers, share resources, message, and video chat. You’ll find groups that have formed around student interests, job and ministry opportunities, alumni, and more.

View your class group page

The Westminster staff will add you to your class groups at the beginning of each term. Shortcuts to your courses are listed on the left panel.

Most importantly, you will come to this course group on Workplace to see the posted video responses from your instructors to your small group questions. You will use your class group to discuss course content with other students and faculty. Feel free to post to the main news feed in the center with questions and insights you have as you work through your course content!

Hear important announcements and connect with the online community at WTS

Within Workplace, we have created a number of groups that you will be automatically added to prior to the start of your first term. The content of these groups can vary from school-wide and program-specific announcements, to updates from the Dean of Online Students, and even to open platforms for communicating with the larger community of students. Feel free to connect with peers across the student body. You will see other student interest groups created that you are welcome to join and interact with. You can also create groups of friends or peers to stay connected with throughout the semester.

Mobile apps

The mobile apps are an excellent way to communicate with your peers and keep up with discussions. Note that you do not use the regular Facebook apps, but a special set listed below. Simply sign in to these apps with your Workplace account credentials.

Main app: Search "Workplace" on your app store and look for Workplace from Meta
Messaging-focused app: Search "Workplace Chat" on your app store and look for Workplace Chat from Meta
