We now have a domain for Gustavus projects – either digital projects students or faculty work on alone or collaborative ones. Students might contribute posts to a joint course blog, or groups might create pages to display their work, all hosted together. The primary platform used for these sites is WordPress – an easy-to-use, easy-to-customize platform used by over a quarter of websites.
There are other options for developing sites for a course, but they tend to be ad-supported or Freemium (some features free, others available only to subscribers). Using the Digital Gustavus domain will give you a full-fledged site without ads.
We’re happy to help you discuss what sort of site you would like and get you started. Just contact Barbara Fister.
