Update 10/11/2017:  The Faculty Council Technology Committee, WebServices & the eLC have announced three options for faculty websites:

   Canvas Logo

The preferred platform to host instructor general content is Canvas.  Within Canvas is a public facing repository for general faculty content called ePortfolio.  Your syllabus, office hours, and course overviews can be created and revised simply and efficiently.  The eLC will provide full-support including one-on-one appointments, Zoom sessions, and on-demand workshops.  For more information on using the ePortfolio tool, check out the Canvas Community resources.

  mobirise logo 

Mobirise is a free drag & drop desktop app for website design.  It's very simple to use and it automatically scales for mobile devices.  However, the application must be downloaded to the instructors computer.  This presents an issue for providing full support.  The eLC will provide limited support in the form of short video tutorials for downloading, navigating, and uploading to the server.  In addition, Mobirise has an easy to follow PDF tutorial HERE.

Should faculty choose to port their existing website to the new "Faculty" server and continue using Dreamweaver, the eLC will provide helpsheet PDF's on connecting to the server and FTP instructions.   Beyond that, eLC suggests Lynda.com courses on using Dreamweaver/HTML which are available to faculty and staff of Collin College.  The eLC is no longer authorized to support and maintain faculty websites using Dreamweaver.
