A Domain of One’s Own is a project that began at the University of Mary Washington as a pilot collaborative effort between the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies and the Office of Information Technology Services. The pilot gave 400 students and faculty their own domain name and web space to install a portfolio of work or map onto existing systems. In Fall of 2013 every incoming student at UMW will have the opportunity to choose their own domain and receive a web hosting account with the freedom to create subdomains, install any LAMP-compatible software, setup databases, email addresses, and carve out their own space on the web that they own and control.
Looking for inspiration?
Look no further than the work of UMW’s amazing students and faculty who have built out their own domains to house their research, portfolios, and both personal and professional content for an international audience.
The Domain of One’s Own project is a unique program being offered by the University of Mary Washington. Instead of giving our students the latest gadget or gizmo out of Cupertino we’re offering them a chance to build their own space on the web that they take with them when they leave. The program has been written up in a variety of publications including Wired and The Chronicle of Higher Education.
