Content Ownership and Administration
Ownership/administration is determined by the source of the content within all display methods (portlet, page, targeted announcement (TA), collaboration-tool and community). When access is granted to use a display method within Access Florida Tech, the person(s) is identified as the owner of that portlet, page, TA, collaboration-tool and/or community. In cases where there are no existing specific content editors, the Access Florida Tech Leadership Committee will be identified as the owner.

For any existing Web content used in Access Florida Tech, from Florida Tech’s website, ownership will be determined by the WCMS content editors assigned by each of the department’s administration. In cases where there are no existing content editors, the department/organizational leader will be responsible for the content they display within Access Florida Tech.
- To create a consistent look and feel, portlets will use the portal default style sheet. The default style sheet sets font colors and sizes, margins, borders and more for almost all HTML tags. Portlets must follow the Florida Institute of Technology graphic identity standards and will undergo the same professional review and careful preparation that is given to any other official university publication in any other medium, as these portlets will present an image of the university to the portal users.
- The appropriate administrative unit(s) that publishes information on an official university website is fully responsible for factually accurate content and currency of information. Sites/portlets will be reviewed quarterly to determine accuracy and currency of content. Websites that contain out-of-date information may be requested to make the necessary corrections. Websites failing to comply with such requests may be unlinked and/or removed.
- If the page/portlet reference outputs HTML, it should only include what would go between thetags (no doctype, html, head, meta tags, etc.)
- Content must facilitate the official business of the university; support the vision, mission, goals and academic values of the university; and comply with university policies, rules, regulations, and local, state and federal laws.
- All portal portlets must make use of the techniques and standards in the World Wide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wcag.php).
- Written permission must be obtained for use of copyrighted materials, with the clear understanding on the part of the copyright holder that these materials will be used in a portlet within the university’s portal on the Web. This applies to the use of text, logos, photographs, drawings, video clips, sound clips and other copyrighted material.
- Content may not contain advertising, which means the promoting of a commercial product or service, whether or not compensation is exchanged or anticipated.
- The portlet should fit nicely in a three-column layout, which will be about 312 pixels wide for a resolution set to 1024x768.
- Content is expected to conform to general socially acceptable principles of taste, civility and decency and to serve the university’s best interests.
- All official university websites must present information using the highest editorial standards (spelling, punctuation, grammar, style, etc.). Websites that contain editorial errors may be requested to make the necessary corrections. Websites failing to comply with such requests may be unlinked and/or removed.
