Setting up and publishing a site: A simple outline of the process


Simple outline of the process

There are four basic steps for starting CTools and creating a project or course website.


Please note that only UM instructors can create Official Course Sites. Instructors, researchers, staff and students can create Project Sites.


1. Log in.


2. Create a site.


3. Publish your site.


4. Add participants. (This happens automatically for official course sites. For project sites, you can add participants before or after Step 3, "Publish your site.")


These steps are described in detail in the next section, "Setting Up and Publishing a Course or Project Website", in this Online Help Guide.
