All departmental, employee, and student ArgoNet accounts created after May 4, 2017 no longer include a web drive. Departmental and employee Web (I) drives that existed before December 4, 2017 are no longer accessible from the Internet in their previous location. This change ensured that UWF takes all necessary measures to maintain ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) and FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) compliance. Content published to the CMS, Google Sites/Drive, or Confluence was not affected.
What happened to the files on my departmental or employee Web (I) drive that existed before May 4, 2017?
Files on the Web (I) drive were moved to your Home (H) drive if you did not elect to retain web publishing.
My Web (I) drive no longer exists, but I still would like to use one for web publishing. Can an exception be made?
You must contact the ITS Help Desk to request that your Web (I) drive be accessible from the Internet at the new location.
You may start accessing your content immediately at the new web address, after your request has been approved. The new web address for your web drive would be pages.uwf.edu/username (Example: pages.uwf.edu/jdoe).
Your web drive must be compliant with FERPA and ADA. Please see Online Content Considerations for links to information pertaining to ADA and FERPA compliance on the web. For more details about FERPA compliance refer to FERPA Information or contact the Office of the Registrar. For more information about ADA compliance, you can inquire with Institutional Communications or the Student Disability Resource Center.
What other options do I have for publishing web content?
- Google Docs/Sites
Will students continue to have access to Web (I) drives?
Students will no longer receive Web (I) drives as a part of their ArgoNet file storage. Students who already had ArgoNet accounts prior to the change will be able to keep their Web (I) drives.
If you need students to have a Web (I) drive for web publishing as part of a course requirement, submit a request to the ITS Help Desk that includes the course section needing access.
