Connect Sites - UCSB Hosted Websites

Connect Sites, a website hosting and content management services service, provides easy, self-editable content, simple web forms to create on the fly, and myriad advanced features available via plug-in "modules."


The SiteImprove contract with UCOP provides a system-wide tool for testing web accessibility. All UC campuses can use the SiteImprove tool to test and monitor compliance with web accessibility standards. 

Google Sites

UC Santa Barbara continues to support Google Sites. However, at this time we advise against usage of this product due to lack of technical support and minimal customization of these sites. In the future, we plan address these shortcomings through local resources and coordination with Google.

Connect Web Analytics

Connect uses the Google Web Analytics tool for web usage discovery, collecting information to improve functionality and web content, and to monitor performance. Data is used to help answer specific questions about the usage and performance of the web site or individual web pages.
