Would a Wiki fill this need. Once it is setup, the basic syntax is not
hard (eg. wikipedia) and would allow folks to get up some basic home
page and links to publication in an hour. And you could later add a more
professional apperance with a offical uni header with a logo etc. All
you need is a basic http server and a wiki engine which should be
relatively painless on any Linux server like Debian. You would
presumedly just ask them to install the wiki software assuming they
already had it setup with apache.
