Beginning in the fall of 2018, the Academic Technology Committee is providing two new opportunities for an online presence for that will provide faculty with professional websites to enhance the national visibility that UMass Lowell faculty deserve.
These solutions will provide faculty with easy-to-use tools to create dynamic, mobile-responsive and ADA-compliant pages. The the first solution, sites.uml.edu, is a WordPress environment hosted by CampusPress running the ‘Elementor’ page builder. This widget-based editor and template is expected to be the more desirable solution due to the ease of use, number of features, and lack of HTML coding. The second solution, a secure SFTP server, will allow faculty to easily migrate existing content from faculty.uml.edu to this new environment. This is designed for faculty interested in using standard HTML editing software, like Adobe Dreamweaver.
Request a Faculty Website
Faculty.uml.edu is no longer accessible to faculty as of Oct. 15, 2018. Please make sure to move your data and information to one of these new platforms. Any content not migrated to a new environment by this date will not be available via a web browser; however, it will be archived. Additionally, WikiSpaces.uml.edu will be sunsetting on Jan. 31, 2019 (or earlier) as the vendor is not supporting the Educational market after that date. The vendor is not providing any options for archival; therefore, all sites will need to be migrated in 2018.
Please reach out to Michael Lucas, FMichael_lucas@uml.edu or 978-934-4681, or Donna Mellen, Donna_Mellen@uml.edu or 978-934-42925 for more information.
