Also, ITS Education Services offers several classes about creating and publishing Web pages.
HTML (Hypertext Mark-Up Language) is used to create web pages. IT Education Services offers workshops on web publishing, including HTML. See the IT Education Services page for details.
Another resource is the Knowledge Navigation Center at U-M's Graduate Library. The center offers one-on-one instruction for people just starting out at making websites.
There are also lots of resources on the web you can check out. Here is just one example: The Bare Bones Guide to HTML by Kevin Werbach.
There are lots of other graphics and clip art archives on the web. Just be sure the graphics are copyright-free. To find such art, do a web search using keywords such as:
There are two ways you can see how many hits your web page is getting. These two methods only work if your pages are served by either the U-M personal web server or the main U-M web server. Pages served by these servers have URLs that begin with either of the text strings below:
Here are the ways to check:
If your page is served by another web server, contact the administrator of that machine to find out your options.
CGI (Common Gateway Interface) programs or scripts run on a web server and let people whose pages are served by that server do some cool things, such as put a counter on a page to monitor how many hits it gets. See CGI Scripts on www.umich.edu to find out about the CGI options available on the U-M web servers (both the main server and the one that serves personal web pages for U-M students, faculty and staff). Instructions for using those programs are also provided.
If your web page is served by a web server other than www.umich.edu, you will need to check with the server's administrator to find out what CGI programs are available on that machine.
U-M students, faculty and staff can create private, personal web space, accessible only to authorized U-M individuals or groups. This may be useful to students working together on a class project who want to keep their work private until they are finished, or for instructors who wish to make course materials available only to class participants.
See Restricting Access to Your Web Pages (S4293) for details and instructions.
If you need to give someone access to make changes to a group's website, see this document:
In most cases, no. The primary purpose of the university seal is to certify official university documents, including diplomas, certificates and official acts by the Board of Regents. The seal should be used primarily for regental and presidential purposes only.
All final authority for the use of the university seal resides in the Office of the Vice President and Secretary of the University of Michigan (email@example.com).
Alumni can keep their personal Web pages, and access to other U-M computing services, by signing up for U-M Online.
Others who leave the university and lose eligibility for standard computing services may need to transfer copies of those pages elsewhere as part of closing out their U-M computing services.
