The SSCC Knowledge Base (formerly known as the SSCC Publication Collection) is your primary source of information about using SSCC resources and statistical computing in general. There are some articles about publishing material on the World Wide Web available at https://www.ssc.wisc.edu/sscc/pubs/web.htm, including a tutorial for using Dreamweaver.
WordPress, is what SSCC encourage users to use for website creation, as it's simple yet robust and no software is needed.
SSCC does not host websites for Econ students that do not have full member accounts (you need to be on dissertator status or a PA to get full access). However you are welcome to attend training sessions. If you have any questions regarding your web page, the SSCC’s staff can also assist with that to some degree.
If you would like your personal webpage to be linked to your name on the Current Student Directory please contact the Grad Advisor or the Grad Program Coordinator.
