Personal Web Space
There are a number of resources available at Evergreen for students, staff and faculty who want to publish on the web. The first step is getting yourself some personal web space! There are two primary options for publishing personal websites:
- Create your site and publish using WordPress at http://blogs.evergreen.edu or
- Write your own html or use a web development tool such as Dreamweaver to publish your site at http://academic.evergreen.edu
Get yourself an Evergreen blog
The easiest way to get started publishing to the web is with a personal blog. You can self request a blog at http://blogs.evergreen.edu. Evergreen uses WordPressMU which is an easy to use website framework that comes with built-in templates and an easy to use publishing interface. No additional software is required, just login to the site and start publishing.
Request Web Space at academic.evergreen.edu (Coyote)
If you're comfortable with HTML or have a favorite web development program like Dreamweaver (available in the Academic Computer Center and in the CAL) and just want a publicly accessible web directory you can request web space on academic.evergreen.edu by going to my.evergreen site. Login using your Evergreen username and password, click on the 'Request personal web space' link and the directory will be created automagically.
Connecting to academic.evergreen.edu (Coyote)
Upload files using an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program. Some programs (like Dreamweaver) now have built in FTP utilities to let you upload pages and images to your website, but you may want to use a more powerful separate FTP program. What you'll need to know: server/host name: academic.evergreen.edu protocol: ftp username/password
- Mac users - we recommend Cyberduck. See FTP to Coyote (Mac) for detailed instructions on using Cyberduck to connect and transfer files to academic.evergreen.edu (Coyote).
- Windows users - we recommend CoreFTP
Proper use of your web space is important. Please see the detailed explanation of Appropriate Use of It Resources.
