The students, faculty, and staff of UM-Flint are eligible to create personal Web pages.
Please consult the UM-Flint Personal Webpage Disclaimer below before creating your personal web page. The URL or address of your personal web site can be either:
http://homepage.umflint.edu/~uniqname (H: or Homedrive server--for everyone)
http://www.umflint.edu/~uniqname (Spruce server--for faculty and staff only)
Web sites created on the Spruce server are limited to 5MB of space when initially created. Faculty and staff can request up to 20MB against their Spruce account. Any Web page that exceeds 20MB will incur storage fees (consult the Server Usage Policy above for more information).
All departmental and student organization web pages must have a link to the UM-Flint Web Disclaimer.
Assistance from the ITS Web and Instructional Technology (WIT) group is available for faculty and staff who require assistance with Web design.
Faculty, staff, departments and student organizations wishing to obtain Web space on the Spruce server, simply fill out the online Webpage Request Form.
For more information, please consult the official UM-Flint Publishing Policies and Guidelines which are available here. The ITS Webmaster can provide assistance and guidance with departmental web projects.
Students, faculty, and staff may register their already created Web page in the UM-Flint Homepage Gallery. You can find quicknotes to help you with your web page at www.umflint.edu/helpdesk.
WEB PAGE DESIGN TIPS:
Use graphics and images sparingly. Keep each image within 1KB.
Post notes, articles, and lecture material in HTML format, or in Word format prior to conversion to HTML or PDF format.
Charts and graphs are better linked as PDF documents.
Update your page on a regular basis, but no less than twice a year. Do not post a service until it is ready to be used (i.e., "Under Construction" signs are discouraged).
Faculty and staff may contact the ITS Web and Instructional Technology (WIT) group for more assistance with Web design.
Faculty and staff may now participate in the UM-Flint Blog Pilot, located at http://blogs.umflint.edu. More information is available at https://helpdesk.umflint.edu/customer/en/portal/articles/1633563-what-is-a-blog-
