Description: Domain of One’s Own refers to the practice of giving students, faculty and staff the opportunity to obtain a web domain with hosted space. SUNY has a Domain of One’s own initiative that they have branded SUNY Create. For more information on Domain of One’s Own, read this flyer from Educause’s 7 Things to know series.
This workshop is designed for those who are interested in getting involved with SUNY Create. Utilizing SUNY Create, instructors and students at participating campuses can build portfolios, course projects, and community hubs that utilize open source technology. Any program that runs on a Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (Commonly called LAMP) environment will work, but the most common are WordPress, Pressbooks, Moodle, Drupal, MediaWiki, and Omeka.
This workshop will assume that participants do not have a background in webhosting or system administration. Participants will first be treated the same way that undergraduates are when they are introduced to the system, going over the very basics of how the internet works including domains, hosting, IP Addresses, and open source software. You will be given and then taught to manipulate a cPanel account, and by the end of the session you will have installed a web platform like WordPress.
