The department strongly recommends everyone to have a personal webpage to publish their professional information. You can use the Content Management System provided by Dornsife at /site-wizard. It's relatively easy to use but the cons are it has a meaningless URL, restricts creativity, and terminates once you leave. The department provides server space as well that allows you total freedom in creating your site and has a better URL, however, it may be challenging to some to create a site from scratch. We do not recommend using the www-scf domain.
|username:||(your geosys username)|
|password:||(your geosys password)|
If you do not like your username, we can create a better alias
There's numerous programs to create a webpage, below are some of the more popular ones.
|Dreamweaver||X||X||Most versatile, requires some learning|
|iWeb||X||Easiest to use for Macs. Newer version support sFTP to upload directly. Older version will require Fetch to upload.|
|notepad/text||X||X||If you know html, this is the most simple way|
Alternatively, you can e-mail me your CV (or something close to that), some photos and I will create a generic one on earth.usc.edu.
Regardless of where your site is, you need to login to mydornsife.usc.edu to tell the college database you have a website. [ MY PERSONAL INFO > PROFESSIONAL INFO > BIOGRAPHICAL INFO > LINKS ]. Otherwise, you will not show up on /earth/students
