UserWeb and CourseWeb

UserWeb and CourseWeb services allow members of the CMU Community to publish (make publicly available) a website from content stored in the Andrew File Server (AFS). When the publish request is initiated, HTML files are copied from the specified AFS directory to the andrew.cmu.edu hosted environment.

  • UserWeb
    Students, faculty and staff are provided personal AFS space. Web content is published using HTML files stored in the www directory of an individual’s AFS space. Personal UserWeb pages are published with the URL  http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/user/youruserid/ where youruserid is your Andrew user ID.
  • CourseWeb
    Faculty and teaching assistants may request a CourseWeb Project Volume (AFS space) to upload and share course-related web pages to the andrew.cmu.edu server. Blackboard is the recommended technology for storing and sharing course-related information. Publishing works the same way, copying HTML files from the www directory of the CourseWeb Project Volume. CourseWeb project volumes are created in the /afs/andrew/course/ tree. CourseWeb pages are published with the URL  http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/course/courseid/ where courseid is the course ID number.
