HSU's Central Web server hosts all official department and University sites. Sites published on this server support the University's public image and facilitate the recruitment of students, staff, faculty, and donors. Campus club sites are also hosted on this server. All sites hosted on this server must meet the HSU accessibility guidelines.
Two categories of people work with Central Web sites:
Developers are sometimes also site owners..
The Moodle Web Server hosts HSU's Moodle web-based instructional system. Moodle makes it easy for faculty to post course information, conduct class discussions, create assignments, take attendance, and hold and grade exams online.

How you access and use sites on the Central Web server is tied directly to your role in relation to any particular site - ie, whether you are an 'owner' or a 'developer'.
As a site owner or owner-developer, your first step towards publishing an official HSU website is to get an account on the Central Web Server. Follow these instructions to do this. Developers must be assigned to a site by the owner before they can work on that site.
Once you have a site and at least one assigned developer, you can upload content to your site using SFTP through Dreamweaver or directly. If you're using Drupal, you'll enter content directly through the program's own interface. Only Assigned Developers can upload content to a site, not owners.
