Who Can Request a Web Directory

Faculty members are encouraged to use CULearn or D2L to host course web pages.

Information You Need to Request a Web Directory

There are a few decisions your department or group needs to make before requesting web space:

  • Who will need to be able to edit/update your web site?
    • This can be one person or a group of people. Make sure the person(s) has a CU login name on one of the following machines: spot, ucsu, ucusb, or rintintin and have those CU login names available.
  • What name do you want in your department or group's URL?
    • This can be the full organization name or a descriptive abbreviation and can use any combination of lower-case and upper-case letters.
  • Is your department or group part of any other department or group?
    • If so, we would like your URL to reflect this. For example, if your "subgroup" is part of a "department" your URL should be:

Once you have decided on these elements of your web site, you can request a web directory.

Setting Group Write Permission On Web Pages

If your web site has more than one person making updates to the web pages, it is important to set the proper write permissions. Setting the group write permission will allow all of the people who are in your web site group to make and publish updates.
