Websites for Courses


This web space is intended to be used for courses that teach or utilize web technologies in their curriculum.  Each course needing web space for students as a part of an assignment or project in the class will be given space for the semester and the necessary access to the space to facilitate the learning objective or the creation of the project assigned to the students.  Upon completion of the course and after grades are due, the work will be archived to DVD and provided to the faculty member for a record of the work in the class.

This web space will also allow the faculty to teach the necessary web technologies to allow our students to be competitive when entering the workforce and be able to demonstrate hands on experience in web technologies.  Common technologies supported on this server include CGI scripting, Perl, PHP, and MySQL.   Other technologies can be implemented as needed by the curriculum at the University.  These requests will be handled on a case by case basis and requested through the TLT Center who will work with IT Services to assess the feasibility of the request and implement if deemed appropriate.

Faculty who want their course to have a web presence and prefer not to utilize the University’s course management system can also request space on courses.shu.edu.  This content will not be archived and will be reviewed for removal on a semester by semester basis.

Technical Info:

  • The communication protocol is FTP only.
  • The server is accessible from both on and off campus.
  • Authentication is set via the University's account management services.

Request an Account:

Account generation is made via a request to the TLT Center which creates the web space and the necessary account access.  Please e-mail michael.soupios@shu.edu with a brief description of your needs.

How to Access:

The current tool supported by the University for creating and maintaining websites is Microsoft's Expression Web which is part of the University's standard software suite.  If you do not already have the software loaded on your University-issued computer, you may contact the Service Desk to request the software or you may use the software in the University's open computer labs.

Courses in Web Development and the use of Microsoft's Expression Web are offered through the CTC on a regular basis.  Review the current available courses »

Users not wishing to use the University-provided software may use the web development software and FTP client of their choice.

Other Available Web Technologies 

WordPress Blogs and Sites are currently available at http://blogs.shu.edu/ and are used for both academic and administrative communications. This service is also available to academic departments that want to have an interactive web presence for their current students outside of the official department pages residing at www.shu.edu.
