  • 19. What Do YOU Want to Learn?<br />
  • 20. .com vs. .org<br />For-profits traditionally use .com<br />Non-profits use .org, when available<br />Can use other domains when .org is not available<br />Cost involved to register domain name, such as www.yourchurch.org<br />Try Godaddy.com, as little as $1.99 for first year<br />
  • 21. Procedures<br />Comply with any denomination or district guidelines/policies<br />Make your church’s policy before you start (or go further, if you’ve started already)<br />Define in writing who will be involved<br />Decide what to do if someone leaves<br />Some web tools may need stricter handling<br />Update annually, or if new tool added<br />Have available for church members<br />
  • 22. Administrator Considerations<br />How many people can access the tool as an administrator?<br />What approval does content need before it’s posted?<br />What’s the process for changing access during leadership changes?<br />Learn about complex passwords, to prevent hacking<br />
  • 23. Working with Youth<br />Define process for any church youth helping with site(s)<br />Have the content approved by adults who are administrators before it’s published<br />Example: Pastor, board chair, and youth leader review content<br />Once reviewed, let youth know if edits are needed or if ready to be published as is<br />
  • 24. Social Networks on Your Site<br />If you create your own social network using Spruz or a similar group:<br />Link to its login screen from church site<br />Cleaner than embedding it to church site<br />Preserves any privacy settings<br />Extremely helpful if you ever change the provider, just update the link rather than any page coding<br />
  • 25. Consents and Credits<br />Photos or videos showing church members:<br />Decide on limits to protect children, such as only show high school or older when posting online<br />Get written permission/consent from people in it<br />Give image credit to person who took it<br />Only post items showing visitors or non-church members if you have their written permission also<br />Take photos or video that don’t show visitors’ or non-church members’ faces<br />
  • 26. A Few Best Practices<br />Use template that has a CSS for screen readers used by visually impaired<br />On sites, use sans-serif fonts <br />Easier for reading online<br />Examples: Arial, Verdana, Tahoma<br />Hyperlink emails on sites<br />Don’t list full email addresses on sites to prevent SPAM<br />Images or text can be hyperlinked<br />
