Publishing a WISE Site

By default, the status of all new WISE sites is "Unpublished."  Only site members with Instructor (course site) or Maintain (project site) roles can view unpublished sites.  This status is indicated in the top left corner of the site home page, directly under the "My Workspace" tab.

Check the box by "Publish site."  You can make your site available to the entire WISE community (all Willamette users and any guest users added by Willamette site owners) by checking the box by "Can be joined by..." and choosing the role to assign to new members.  Click the Update button to publish the site.
