How to edit your GUWeb page

Editing your GUWeb Page

If you have opted for a GUWeb page while registering (either for individual or departmental), you will also get credentials for the GUWeb page. The GUWeb page is hosted by Google for Gauhati University's official domain. So, if you are familiar with editing a Google Site, it is same for your GUWeb page. All GUWeb pages are located in our official sub-domain at http://web.gauhati.ac.in.


Advantages of a GUWeb page
  • You have about 15 GB of space in every GUWeb site.
  • The GUWeb site is fully secured unless you share your password with someone.
  • In the unlikely event of a failure of the main website (which is at https://gauhati.ac.in), the GUWeb site will be always working.

Purpose of a GUWeb page

The GUWeb page can hold data and information, which may not displayed in the main site. For example, you would like to include a video for your students in your website (or anything else), GUWeb page is your tool. So, use the GUWeb page for all information that you would like to have, which may not be a part of the main site. For an example, how to effectively use a GUWeb page, please see http://web.gauhati.ac.in/physics.
