Faculty and Research Web Services
|Faculty and research web services are designed to support the professional, academic, scholarly, and research needs of UCSC faculty and researchers.|
Faculty, graduate students, and research staff can use WordPress to create websites to highlight professional, research, and other scholarly activities.
WordPress is a web-site management system that allows you to create websites with very little technical or design expertise. It comes with design templates, a relatively easy-to-learn editing environment, and a host of tools to make your website look fantastic.
Faculty Instructional Technology Center staff are available to consult with instructors on the best practices for developing course materials and creating course websites with a focus on maximizing usage of eCommons, our collaborative learning environment. We provide limited web site design services for traditional websites.
For users who want a do-it-yourself web site, we provide server space to host your files. ITS provides the secure and reliable environment, you provide your web expertise and content. Self-managed Personal Web Pages are also available through this service.
The Personal URL service was created to provide each UCSC faculty member with a simple, unchanging, and university-branded web address. Enter the URL you'd like your personal URL to redirect to and it will start working immediately.
Research groups that would like to take advantage of the official campus design may choose to use the Campus WCMS.
All faculty, staff, and students have access to Google Sites. UCSC account and Google Group permissions make sharing and collaboration easy and therefore make Google Sites an great solution for intranets and project sites.
Additional web publishing may be available in your division.
