Web Services for Faculty and Staff
The Baskin School of Engineering hosts a wide variety of web sites for different BSOE-related research projects, clubs, classes and departments. Any faculty or staff member can request a web site by completing the web site application form. A mostly-complete list of all the web sites that are hosted at the BSOE is available.
Class Web Pages
The BSOE hosts class web pages for every class taught at the BSOE. Instructors and their designees can edit the class web page using Samba, SFTP or SSH. Some class web pages go back to 1996! Starting in Fall 2011, the BSOE began using a new class web page system which is documented here. If you need help editing your class web page, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal Home Pages
BSOE faculty, staff and students can create personal web pages on our web servers. For more information about how to create a personal web page, please read the BSOE personal web page instructions. PHP scripts can be run from your web home directory. Name the files with a ".php" extension, and PHP will execute them. Other CGI scripts can also be run from home directories.
WebDAV can be enabled for web sites and project directories, allowing for file uploads and downloads. Web-only accounts can be created that allow non-BSOE users to access these directories. Send an e-mail to email@example.com to have WebDAV enabled in your web site or project directory.
The BSOE uses Drupal on many of its web sites. Drupal is software that allows non-technical users to edit web pages. There are some helpful Drupal tutorials avaiable to help you get started using Drupal.
The BSOE hosts a Request Tracker web site. This package is typically used to track work orders, bugs and so on through an e-mail and web-based interface. If you would like to use Request Tracker for your group, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The BSOE hosts a subversion server for hosting source code and other project data. If you would like to request a Subversion repository, please e-mail email@example.com.
We host a Gallery installation for storing BSOE-related photo albums.
The BSOE also has activated several Google Apps for BSOE users to use.
