Web.unc.edu perfect for creating final projects for your classes. You can put all your content online, and augment your research with pictures, videos, audio, and hyperlinks to resources online.
I was contacted yesterday by a professor who wanted to allow her class to create graphical novels online for final projects. I made a 1/2 hour video walkthrough of three different layouts and options for creating this final site that might be useful for others thinking about using web.unc.edu for their final projects.
If you are not a paid employee or an enrolled student at UNC, but still find that an ONYEN or PID is necessary for website administration, creating web.unc.edu sites, or any other use of university resources, then it is possible to become an “Other Affiliate” and get an Affiliate ONYEN for these purposes. These can be used by visiting faculty members, website developers, or anyone not directly connected to the University, but who needs an ONYEN or PID for variable instances.
In order to complete this process, the Affiliate must fill out the Affiliate Application form and submit it to the HR Facilitator of their department. The HR facilitator can then submit the Affiliate ONYEN request in the Affiliate Web System. Once the request has been approved by the HR Facilitator, the Other Affiliate can create their ONYEN on the ONYEN Services website.
In order to find the correct HR facilitator to be a sponsor, check the HR Facilitators List. Processing for the PID may then take up to two business days for completion.
For more information about the Affiliate System, ONYEN services, or the UNC One Card office, you can visit the following links: http://www.pid.unc.edu/Home/CreateReactivatePID/OtherAffiliates.aspx,
We are slowly opening up the site for faculty and staff members across the college. Last semester we piloted the service with Sarah Shields and her “Nations Borders Identity Conflict” course. The students created a series of static pages with all sorts of information about conflicts from 10 different conflicts around the world.
We also have a couple of classes using web.unc.edu websites for their classes this semester.
If you need help creating a site, please submit a ticket to http://oasis.unc.edu/remedy and someone will get in touch with you to get you going. We are also available to come to your class to teach students how to use the site if you would like.
