Web Office


Colby offers many different ways to create and publish a web page, depending on the type of site that needs to be created. The following pages explore the options that are available to faculty, staff, and students.

Department/Program Sites

All Colby College department/program websites are run on WordPress. These sites are maintained by each department and are reviewed and supported by Communications and Information Technology Services.

Blogs, Courses, and Personal Sites

Blogs and personal websites can be set up on Colby’s community website, web.colby.edu, powered by WordPress. Course-related pages can be set up on Moodle or web.colby.edu.

Internal (Colby-only) Sites

Pages that are to only be viewed by Colby faculty, staff, or students are best served in myColby, Colby’s informational portal. This includes any transactional forms that collect sensitive information. myColby is maintained by Information Technology Services.

Training and Guidelines

Academic ITS provides training for websites housed within Colby’s content management system.
