Office Inside Page

Colorado College has embarked upon a college-wide goal of creating a website that is academic, fresh, modern, and easy to navigate.

Second Year - The Goal

  • Migrate remaining sites to the dotCMS platform
  • Assist professors with migrating their content to Wordpress or to dotCMS as appropriate
  • Continue providing support to all academic departments and offices
  • Address feature requests as time and testing allows
  • Continue updating the dotCMS platform so that CC's website remains current
  • Bring together a community of web authors

First Year - The Goal

This first year we are coming together, supported by the Web Implementation Team (WIT), to migrate all department and office sites to the new system.  In subsequent years we will work to hone the dynamic content and begin to migrate other pages to the system.

The new Content Management System (CMS), called dotCMS, provides a flexible environment for creating and maintaining web pages.  The basis of using a CMS is to provide one application to house all of the college's web content, which you can easily access via standard web browsers.  This common application will allow you as a Web Author to edit content without having to buy software like Dreamweaver, learn how to use it, and deal with the associated problems.  In dotCMS, you can more easily apply the college's new design to all your pages, and even share your content with others who want to incorporate it into their own pages.

The Web Implementation Team (WIT) will be here throughout the process to provide support. Through WIT you will have access to help with information architecture, content migration, training resources and answers to any questions that may arise via the Web Author Community forum

Support at all levels will be available whether in department wide trainings, one on one, chat availability, videos, and tutorials for how to perform functions within the system.

Look forward to information on the progress of this implementation.  Visit us frequently to stay up to date with this project.
