Web Team Newsletter - August 14, 2003 (Volume 2.5)

Reminder about Web Style Guide Timeline Dates

***IMPORTANT***: All faculty websites should meet Phases I and II of the Web Style Guide guidelines by September 29, 2003. All other websites had until August 8, 2003 to meet Phases I and II of the Web Style Guide requirements. We will soon be reviewing websites for compliance with Phases I and II - the Cabinet agreed in May to DELETE from the web server any website that is not in compliance. Please contact the Web Team at webteam@ohlone.edu to see what can be done about your website before it is removed. The Web Style Guide is located at http://www.ohlone.edu/org/webstyleguide/.

ADDENDUM after original newsletter was sent: Websites managed by the Web Team are already in compliance with Web Style Guide requirements, except for some sites that need additional content. None of the Web Team-managed sites are in danger of being deleted.

Need Website Reviews for Fall 2003 Semester

As the new Fall 2003 semester starts, it's time to review the Ohlone College website for information that needs to be updated or removed or added - especially sections related to you, the subject you teach, the department/division you're in, the committee(s) you belong to, etc. A list of some things to look for can be found on this page: http://www.ohlone.edu/org/webteam/newsletters/newsltr20030516.html

People responsible for maintaining websites should make the necessary changes and email the Web Team when the modified pages are ready to be published to the main web server.

The Web Team now manages 79 websites on the Ohlone College domain, with additional sites being added every few weeks (our client list is at http://www.ohlone.edu/org/webteam/clientlist.html).

Content providers of Web Team-managed websites should make changes to existing content by printing the web pages needing modification, marking up the hard copies (red ink is easy for us to read…!), and sending the printouts to "Web Team - Library" in the Mail Rounds. If you have extensive modifications or new paragraphs or new pages, please send us Word documents with the desired content typed out in full - send them via email to webteam@ohlone.edu - and we'll get those updates online.

If you are a faculty member interested in having a website that provides students with your contact information, a photo of yourself, your office hours and class schedule, and a syllabus for each course you teach, the Web Team can manage your website for you - all you need to do is provide us with your textual content in Word documents. Please contact webteam@ohlone.edu if you would like us to manage your website. We've recently completed these faculty websites:

  • Cynthia Katona - http://www.ohlone.edu/people/ckatona/ [link deleted]
  • Allison Kuehner - http://www.ohlone.edu/people/akuehner/
  • Vince Newell - http://www.ohlone.edu/people/vnewell/ [link deleted]

If you want the Web Team to manage your Division, Department or Committee website, we can do so - this FAQs page will get you started: http://www.ohlone.edu/org/webcenter/faqs_webteam.html. Please contact webteam@ohlone.edu if you would like us to manage your website.
