Anatomy of a Domain

In Agnes Scott's Waypoints, we are imagining that the central domain that students and faculty register will serve, not as the whole of each individual’s online presence, but as a sort of central hub that connects together various disparate online elements.

Individuals will be free to determine what elements or services they want or need in order to publish their work online, and the domain that they register as part of our program will become the central pillars of these structures that they create.
