How to request help for established websites:

Please email Geisel.Webmaster@dartmouth.edu. Within the context of the email (or subject line), please include the URL of the web page(s) requesting updating. This can be accomplished by highlighting the web address within the address bar on your web browser, selecting copy, and pasting the URL within the email.

Example:

Please make edits to: https://geiselmed.dartmouth.edu/oit/

 

Please, also, include the list of edits as a separate attached word document or provide a shared link to a cloud-based document. As far as images, please send these as a separate attachment or add a link within the document as to where these images are stored. The maximum email capacity with attachments is 150 MB. Please provide all images in high resolution. Multiple high-resolution images may require uploading the images to a cloud-based shared drive.

Viewing documents on web pages and posts

Many web pages, within the Geisel School of Medicine, contain links to documents. When emailing the web team new documents or replacement documents, the best document type to view on web pages are .pdf formats. Create the document in MS Word and Save As PDF. Select, “Best for electronic distribution and accessibility”.

In some instances, Word Documents are named prior to exporting to a PDF. If the name is not changed or deleted, it will carry over to the new format. The name will appear at the top of the tab when the user opens the document. To change or delete the name of the document, open the document either in Word or PDF format. Select File, then Properties. In Word, the title will live under Summary; while in the PDF, if will display under Description. If you delete the name of the document, the tab will display the file name the document is saved as. Otherwise, add or change the title name in these destinations. Remember to save the document after these changes are made.

Videos within web pages

There are many ways to embed videos within web pages. Videos can be labeled and opened up, similarly to documents, within a link. Alternatively, videos can be showcased with a thumbnail image and viewed by pressing play.

There are a wide variety of platforms that videos can be stored and shared. The Geisel Web team recommends Panopto™. There are many options within the platform to share and view videos. We invite you to visit the website https://dartmouth.hosted.panopto.com/ and sign in using your Dartmouth credentials. From here, you will be able to set up an account for your team and share links with the Geisel Web team or embed the videos yourselves. There are a multitude of How To video tutorials that will answer any questions you may have about the platform.
