Lee University WebPage accounts, used to create and maintain Web sites using the WordPress MultiSite content management system, are available to all Lee University faculty. Accounts must be used in accordance with the college’s Acceptable Use Policy, and the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) reserves the right to limit the use of technologies that might compromise the security and integrity of the college’s IT resources. In particular, any mechanism that sends email must be registered with and approved by CTE.
Web sites can be requested for:
- Department Blogs
- Personal Faculty sites
- Global Trip Sites
Requests for WordPress accounts should be made using the Web Site Request form. The individual designated as the site administrator will be contacted within 3 work days with information about the account.
How a site is designed and developed, its URL, and how it will be linked to from the College Web site depend on the site’s function.
Department Blogs: Sites for academic departments will be provided with a WordPress theme that conveys the site’s official institutional affiliation. These sites will reside on webpages.leeu.edu and will have addresses that identify the department (e.g., webpages.leeu.edu/artsandscience).
Personal Faculty Pages: Sites that represent a student’s or employee’s personal and academic interests are the creative expressions of the authors. These sites will reside on webpages.leeu.edu and will have addresses that include the Lee University Network ID (e.g., webpages.leeu.edu/mwilson, webpages.leeu.edu/msturgeon).
Global Trips: Sites can be requested for one-time or recurring trips. These sites will reside on webpages.leeu.edu and will have addresses that identify the event (e.g., webpages.leeu.edu/cambridge).
Developing Your Site
While CTE staff cannot author or maintain your Web sites, the department provides resources to help you develop and maintain your site.
Training: Workshops on WordPress are offered throughout the year. One-on-one training is also available by contacting a member of the CTE staff.
Online Help: A growing collection of help documents on how to get the most out of (and into) your WordPress site is available at http://webpages.leeu.edu/help/.
Software: Applications for developing multimedia content to include in your WordPress site are available on most college-owned computers. WordPress site maintenance does not require any special software — all content management is done in a standard Web browser.
