Steps for Establishing a Hosted Web Page on the SWC Server
Personal web pages are available for Faculty (full or part time) to be used with their classes. Classified Professionals may have web pages but only for their department or school. Training is provided by Staff Development please check calendar for available dates.
When you request your homepage account, you will have three options to choose from. Your skill level and the time you have available will determine which option is best for you.
The Web Development Team has created 14 homepage templates for faculty and staff to choose from. Using one of these templates is a quick and easy way to put together and maintain an attractive site that complies with web standards and meets Section 508 web accessibility requirements*. Training on how to use the templates is available through Staff Development. To

Create Your Own
If you want to create your own site, be sure you have the skills and time to dedicate to your homepage. The look and feel of your site will be up to you. Though you are not constricted by a template, there are some requirements you must meet. These include, but are not limited to, the post tilde (~) account disclaimer, the Southwestern College logo, and a link back to the Southwestern College main website. In addition, your homepage must meet Section 508 web accessibility requirements*.
Someone Creates/Maintains the Page for You
You may also have someone create and/or maintain your homepage. However, you are responsible for making any arrangements with this person and submitting their information to the Web Development Team. Please be cautious when giving out your username and password for server access. The same homepage requirements must be followed as described
under “Create Your Own.”
