Anyone with a Gatorlink username has the ability to create a Project Site. A Project site can be a collaboration site for groups of students, faculty, departments, clubs, etc. The Project Site can be made publicly available for anyone with a Gatorlink usernmae. Project Sites do not contain assessment tools such as Assigments and Tests & Quizzes. They also do not contain a Gradebook.

A common use for a Project Site is for Instructors to use it as a place to store files that will be used to construct a course. This method addresses several issues that are present in courses that do not use this method:

To use a Project Site for file storage, do not make it public. Enroll those people you want to have access to the files in the course as "Facilitators." Upload the files you are going to use in your courses into the Resources in the Project Site. The files need to be made "publicly viewable" so that they can be seen by the students in your course(s).

To create a Project Site:

  1. Click Worksite Setup
  2. Click New.
  3. Select "Project Site" and click Continue.
  4. Give your site a title (required) and a description if desired.
  5. Click Continue
  6. Choose the tools you want to incluce in your Project Site.
  7. Choose to use material from another site if you want.
  8. Click Continue.
  9. Choose whether or not the Project Site will be public. (Anyone with a gatorlink username can join the Project Site if it is public. If it is not public, the Facilitator will enroll participants.)
  10. Click Continue
  11. Click Create Site
