Web Publishing at FIT
Become a Web Editor
Members of the FIT community are welcome to help edit and maintain this website by following these steps:
- Ask for and receive approval from your supervisor. Maintaining web content is an important responsibility and can be time consuming, depending on the pages for which you are responsible.
- Attend training: Basic Web Publishing, Advanced Web Publishing, and other sessions as they are developed and scheduled. (see below)
Editors become the point of contact for and assume responsibility for all pages and/or directories to which they are assigned. This includes spelling, grammar, link integrity, photos, accessibility, and fact checking.
Editors should have access to and be able to use photo editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop.
All FIT web editors are required to follow our policies and practices, which should be reviewed on a regular basis:
|If you need a change made to a webpage and you don't have an assigned web editor, contact the web content coordinator: [email protected]|
The web content coordinator conducts regular training sessions for users. Access to make changes to the website is restricted to those individuals who have successfully completed the required training.
