There are two types of sites:
(1) Service courses
(2) Departmental courses
The webmaster TA is Ira Wolfson <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Until now the opening of a site has required a complicated procedure (asking Ira to open a new semesterial folder, grant permissions; then the TA had to use SSH/FTP to handle files; and sharing ownership was problematic).
This year the TAs are requested to use a Course Administration Interface that has been created by Ira. The interface allows to perform all the tasks via the Browser. See instructions here:
This is going to be from now on the default interface for course site maintenance. If a TA want permission to mange a course site using the old SSH/FTP procedure, he/she should email me <email@example.com> a request that explains the reason for not using the new web interface. Clearly, for non-personally maintained sites, the old procedure is time consuming and less convenient.
