How To Use the AWPS

Once your AWPS collection has been requested and you’ve received the collection name and URL, you can transfer your files (e.g., HTML, CSS, images, etc.) to the server for publishing. 

Remember, the AWPS service does not include development tools.  You should use a web authoring tool such as Dreamweaver, available in the Computer Labs, to create your files.
