Can I add video or an image slideshow to my website?
The WebCMS does not provide tools for adding video or image slideshows to your website, but it does allow you to embed video and image slideshows from third-party websites.
The Communications Office maintains Hunter College's official YouTube channel which you may use to host video you want to embed on your website. To post video on Hunter's YouTube channel, send your video file(s) on a disc to the Communications Office (Room 1301 East). All videos will be reviewed for length and content.* Upon approval, a web editor will upload the video(s) for you and provide you with the code that you then need to add to a page in your WebCMS subsite.
Alternatively, if your office or department has its own YouTube channel, you may upload the video yourself to that channel, and embed it in your subsite.* For assistance with this process, contact the Technology Resource Center (TRC).
There are many free tools on the web that can help you generate image slideshows, which you can then embed in your WebCMS subsite. One example is Photobucket.com, which many current subsites use. For assistance with embedding a Photobucket slideshow into your WebCMS subsite, contact the TRC. (Please note that Hunter College is not affiliated with Photobucket, cannot offer support for their services and does not guarantee their results.)
As an alternative to the slideshow, you may want to consider creating a photo gallery.
* All videos are subject to review by the Communications Office and must meet academic and professional standards. Videos must also adhere to all of YouTube's Community Guidelines. Videos must not contain any copyrighted material that you do not have permission to use. Videos submitted to the Communications Office may be returned to the department with a list of requested revisions before the video can be posted online. If you have any questions about what is/is not acceptable, please call (212) 772-4070. The Communications Office and ICIT can only provide support for issues regarding the College's official YouTube channel.
