The Web Development Office designs, produces and maintains the college’s official website, http://www.dcc.edu , including site navigation, links, and templates for college-related web pages. Included in this purview are web pages for individual units, departments, and organizations.
The Web Development team maintains and updates the college’s site on a daily basis, working with all affiliations of the college to provide resourceful information online. The Web Development team also works closely with the Office of Information Technology to pursue new features and offerings that are supported through OIT. In instances where advanced programming is required or requested the Web Development team consults with OIT for assistance and recommendations.
All web pages must adhere to the design and function of the college’s web site. Each unit, department, or organization provides a representative to serve as a web page author who works with the Web Development Office to provide the content and functionality of their unit or department page.
With the introduction of Leepfrog Content Management Software in 2004, web page authors now have increased control over content, with the ability to make changes in a timely manner to keep information relevant and fresh. The Web Development Office provides Leepfrog software training and login account information for the user. All web pages are approved by the author’s immediate supervisor and also the Executive Director of Public Affairs and Information prior to posting.
Faculty-web sites are web pages that are not linked from the public college web site and are maintained solely by the individual faculty member authoring the page or pages. Faculty members are encouraged to use their own web pages to post class assignments, communicate with students, and use for general purposes to benefit learning and student development, as well as provide faculty members with an outlet for artistic expression. Faculty web pages are monitored for appropriateness of use by division deans or department directors, or the author’s immediate supervisor. Faculty web pages are offered and available to all faculty members. Please send your Faculty-web account request to the Office of Information Technology.
The team also develops new ideas for the site by using web-based surveys to gain viewer feedback and recommendations for enhancement. The web team encourages you to submit information or report problems to email@example.com.
The college’s web site does not accept advertising and, as a rule, does not accept links to exterior sites or pages. Exceptions are made for external links on a case-by-case basis in order to serve students’ needs, such as the link to Barnes and Nobles bookstore or other affiliations with the college or system office.
