ITS is piloting a new initiative called Domain of One’s Own, sometimes referred to as DoOO. This new service allows faculty to claim a free domain name (web address) and start building a website that is uniquely their own. You can use such apps as WordPress, Omeka, and Scalar to create your own website.
There are 3 areas our Domain of one’s Own initiative will focus on:
- WEB LITERACY: Master the tools and technology that make up the web to build your own space online.
- DIGITAL IDENTITY: Explore the notion of digital identity and how publishing on the web can frame an identity.
- RECLAIM: Learn to take ownership and control over the content you put on the web instead of handing it to third-party publishers.
