Some Tools for Creative Digital Assignments

Websites

Readily Available Website Options

You and your students can create collaborative class websites on your own, using the following tools. Library staff are happy to help train students on and create digital resources (handouts, walkthroughs, etc.).

Additional/Advanced Website Options Available Through Hege

If you are interested in having your students work on a more advanced collaborative class website, Hege Library can help make this happen! We have a subscription to Reclaim Hosting, which allows us to create websites spinning off from our main domain. Some examples of past websites are available at http://ds.guilford.edu. We can create a websites for digital scholarship projects: projects are evaluated upon request for creation of a website, and a website is created for projects that fit this criteria. Please reach out to Tierney Steelberg and Denise Cowardin if you would like to discuss the creation of a website for one of your classes.

Here are some examples of the kinds of sites we can create:

Hege Library & Learning Technologies staff are available to:

  • create websites in the Guilford College Digital Scholarship Reclaim Hosting server space,
  • train users on WordPress and Omeka,
  • create user log-ins (upon request),
  • set up automatic back-ups through Reclaim Hosting,
  • and help troubleshoot website issues.

To the best of their abilities and availability, staff may also:

  • assist with website styling,
  • help import an existing site that fits criteria into the Reclaim Hosting space,
  • and assist with exporting a site at the end of its lifecycle.

Please see these slides from a Summer 2019 workshop, "Making Scholarship Public: Collaborative Class Websites," for a rundown of some considerations and suggestions with collaborative website work.
