  1. Account Creation: Contact Kelly Jones in ESM at (478) 757-2635 or Doug Smalley in ESM at (478) 471-2421 and request to create your account.
  2. Brush up on your HTML with the tutorial "Getting Started with HTML". More HTML tutorials can be found by searching Google.
  3. Aquire the tools to build your web pages such as SharePoint Designer (Free download from Microsoft), Dreamweaver (Must be purchased by your department), or Notepad++ (Free Online Download). Be aware that Microsoft Word is poor choice for webpage editing.
  4. Publish your site:
    Download an SFTP Client. This software will enable you to move your web pages from your computer to the server where people can view them. Instructions for accessing your web folder: Anyone can view your new Web pages using by going to these URLs:
    • http://facultyweb.mga.edu/your.name or
    • http://staffweb.mga.edu/your.name or

Your first page should be named index.html.
