Personal Web Sites
Students, faculty and staff members are encouraged to obtain a personal web site to publish and communicate their interests and contact information. CCIT provides support servcies for personal web sites, but the owner of the site is responsible for its content, subject to certain rules and regulations noted below.
CREATING A PERSONAL WEB SITE
To start your personal home page:
- If you have not yet done so, activate your Mines MultiPass account using the information you received when you were hired by, or accepted to, Mines. Note that most people create their MultiPass account immediately upon arrival at Mines. If you have difficulty activating your MultiPass account at the link above, help is available in the CCIT Computer Commons (CT156a) or via the Mines Help Center “Helpdesk.”
- Enter your MultiPass account information into the Personal Home Page Creation Tool (along with some biographical information) to automatically create an attractive, Mines-branded personal home page (along with the required server account associated with it). This is the fastest way to create your new home page. Alternatively, you may submit a request for a “personal home page” via the Mines Help Center “Helpdesk”. CCIT personnel will create a space for you on the Mines web server and send you more information regarding policies and procedures via email.
- To edit your personal web site, log into the Personal Home Page Creation Tool again, then change and resubmit your data. That is the easiest and fastest way to maintain your personal home page. Alternatively, you may replace the home page created earlier using HTML pages that you write. Note, however, that running the Personal Home Page Creation Tool again will replace any custom index.html file you create, so be careful not to accidentally overwrite custom code. For more information, review the CCIT personal web site maintenance page.
Creation of a personal web site on the Mines servers and publication of the web pages through the campus network requires adherence to Mines computer usage policies. Please view the Mines Personal Home Page Policy.
NOTE: This process will change entirely sometime in 2018.
