Instructor Site Management

All GHC faculty members need an easily-accessible web site that can be reached from the official GHC web site.

Students thinking about taking your course should be able to get in touch with you, find your office hours, and learn about what you do in your courses. Although many GHC faculty members have a site separate from the GHC site, all instructors should maintain a basic site that students can access from the main GHC site.

The easiest way to build a faculty site is to use the GHC Website Management System, built specifically to build web pages for GHC faculty. The Web Management System allows you to work in a familiar environment, while producing easy-to-read and quick-to-display web pages. It also allows you to edit and update your site easily.
