What is Knight Domains?
Knight Domains is a new initiative at St. Norbert College that empowers students, faculty, and staff to take responsibility for a little piece of the internet that they can call their own. This new project calls on our college community to think deeper about digital identity and web literacy while challenging us to reclaim our data and digital presence from third party services. In technical terms, a person is given space on the internet to build their own websites or deploy their own applications. This technical description is only half of the story though. While it is true that digital skills are built through this process the more meaningful growth happens through careful consideration of who we are and the world that we share.
