Your Web Address

All new Faculty web sites with Contribute are on the fog server. Your address will be:

http://fog.ccsf.edu/userid

—where userid is your login to CCSF computers/GroupWise email - usually the first letter of your first name and up to the first 7 letters of your last name.

Pre-training Skills workshop (optional, based on self-assessment)

Workshops covering Computer Skills relevant to using Contribute are offered for those who need to brush-up. They are usually given just before the main training sessions. See the TLC workshops page for the upcoming schedule.

Maintaining your site

The TLC also schedules web site maintenance/update sessions to help with all aspects of updating and adding to yoursite. No pre-reg is necessary for these drop-in sessions. They are usually scheduled at the beginning and end of all semesters, sometimes during intersession, and on Independent Flex day (the day before Flex).

Sites not updated for 6 months will have their link removed from the Faculty Directory. (Nothing will happen to the sites! Don't worry, they just won't be linked to the Directory until they are current.)

How to Pre-register

  1. You need CCSF Network and Email (GroupWise) accounts. Please send in the form to obtain these accounts at least 3 weeks before the scheduled workshops to allow time for setup. If you are new to these CCSF resources, we suggest that you come to Computer Skills for Contribute workshop to practice logging in and to get comfortable with CCSF hardware and software.

  2. You also need an account that gives you space on the fog server. You may already have an old fog account, but, if not, please obtain the form entitled:
    Information Technology Services Request for Computer Account.
    • Under the category Other Types of Accounts: Check the box beside Special Project Web Site and write Faculty Contribute web site on fog in the Any additional information space.
    • Request the form by calling the Help Desk at 239-3711.
    • Please submit the form at least two weeks before the training date.

Applications are due about two 2 weeks prior to a training session (to give us time to set up your account) . Please check the current flyers and online calendars for specific dates and time.

  4. If you already have a web site on fog, please let us know how you want to handle it. You can keep the pages and link to them from your Contribute site—or vice-versa. You may want to copy material from your old site to your new one. Or you may wish simply to delete your old pages.
