Web & Enterprise Services: teaching.up.edu Guidelines
Teaching.up.edu is a web domain created, supported, and maintained by the Office of Web & Enterprise Services to serve as a physical location for web-related teaching activities. It differs from Moodle, PilotsUP, Sherpa, and faculty.up.edu in that:
- It hosts web applications and supports classroom development of web applications via teaching or instruction.
- It hosts web pages and websites created by students, teachers, and staff for classroom and pedagogical purposes.
- It does not hold resources that could be communicated using Moodle or stored using web foldering in combination with the SAN.
- The information does not enhance a particular department’s, program’s, or office’s larger web presence or directly contribute to recruiting of students or faculty.
- It does not hold personal or professional web sites used to demonstrate or reflect faculty scholarship.
Additional web resources other than teaching.up.edu are available to University web creators. These are PilotsUP, Sherpa, Moodle, and supported web application servers. To determine if material belongs within these areas, consider the following:
- Is the information applicable at a department, school, or office level? In other words, would publishing the material in a visible location enhance the mission or message of the group? If so, this information should move to Sherpa and/or a PilotsUP community.
- Is material related to a particular course that simply requires web display/accessibility and/or does not require active use of web server resources to create it? If so, this information should move to the structured and supported environment of Moodle.
- Does the application support a wide University audience and will it be utilized over the long-term? If so, then the application should be supported on a University application server.
For more information, please review the solutions decision flowchart.
Using teaching.up.edu is a privilege rather than a right. Because it is a shared resource, certain guidelines apply.
- Teaching.up.edu is not a storage server. All content, files, images, etc. on it are required for web access and display. Files that have served this purpose but have become outdated should be removed in a timely manner and archived in the University’s electronic storage locations.
- Teaching.up.edu is not a resource for personal web page content display. All information should be related to the purpose of teaching and professional academic communication.
- Teaching.up.edu is not intended for organizational web site display. Clubs, honor societies, professional organizations affiliated with University personnel, and other approved organization web sites/pages may render their information on a PilotsUP community or orgs.up.edu.
- The University’s Acceptable Use policy applies to all uses of the server and domain.
To gain access to a folder on teaching.up.edu, faculty and staff should do the following:
Submit a folder request to the Help Desk that includes:
- The course name/number of the class that will use teaching.up.edu or a simple one to two word description of the purpose of the teaching site (for non-course teaching material). Please use conventional web naming standards (no spaces, special characters, and avoid underscores) when naming your folder. Examples: teaching.up.edu/ENV333 or teaching.up.edu/beginhtml.
- The purpose of the material in the folder.
- Any special access considerations for the folder (i.e., enrolled students require permissions, password protection is required, etc.).
- The Help Desk will review the material and consult with web and administrative systems if necessary. We may return to the requestor for more information.
- If the material is in keeping with the objectives of the domain, a folder will be created and permissions to the folder granted. If not, web and administrative systems will work with the requestor to find a more appropriate web location for the material.
