Domain of One’s Own (DoOO) is a service allows faculty and students working on academic projects for class, research, or e-portfolios to claim a free domain name (web address) and start building their own unique website. You can use such apps as WordPress, Omeka, and Scalar to create your own website. There are 3 areas our Domain of one’s Own initiative will focus on:
Master the tools and technology that make up the web to build your own space online.
Explore the notion of digital identity and how publishing on the web can frame an identity.
Learn to take ownership and control over the content you put on the web instead of handing it to third-party publishers.
Faculty are encouraged to create a domain both for their own professional use and for the use of public course projects. Domains are not a replacement for Moodle but are rather intended to create space for faculty to:
Collaborate with students on a digital course and/or research projects
Develop data visualization projects or blogs
Showcase your own research and teaching activities
Curate your professional online presence
Have your students develop e-portfolios
Design a landing page for your academic conference or event
