Find help with Website Editing at ATSU
Websites at ATSU are managed using a variety of tools (sometimes called Content Management Systems or CMS). The website management process is divided by internal and public-facing content. Internal content is facilitated and managed by ITS. Public-facing content is facilitated and managed by Communication & Marketing along with support from external vendors and ITS. Here is a list of the common tools we use.
- Adobe Contribute – This software (or CMS) is used by ATSU faculty & staff to edit public content which has not yet been redeveloped by Communication & Marketing. Learn more here.
- Expression Engine – This is the primary CMS used by Communication & Marketing for redevelopment of ATSU public content. As ExpressionEngine is more widely deployed, ATSU faculty and staff department or program editors will be able to edit public content as with Adobe Contribute. Questions about the redesigned website or this CMS can be directed to Communication & Marketing (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Google Sites – This tool is used by many ATSU faculty & staff, primarily to create websites for an internal audience. While creating public websites is possible with Google Sites, please consult Communication & Marketing (email@example.com) before creating a public website with Google Sites. Learn more here.
- LibGuides – This tool is similar to Google Sites and is used by faculty & staff for creating websites that are only accessible to internal audiences. LibGuides also has the capability to create public facing content, but as with Google Sites, please consult Communication & Marketing (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to creating a public website. The ATSU Library manages and supports LibGuides, questions can be directed to:
- WordPress – This tool is not widely used, but is being deployed for both internal and public content when specific requirements are needed, such as blogging, ecommerce and/or event scheduling and calendar functionality. Website content currently using WordPress includes Continuing Education (https://ce.atsu.edu/), the Museum of Osteopathic Medicine (https://www.atsu.edu/museum-of-osteopathic-medicine), and ATSU student life (http://blogs.atsu.edu/studentlife/). If you believe WordPress is the right tool for your website project, get in touch with Stephen Emlund (email@example.com) for internal content, and Communication & Marketing (firstname.lastname@example.org) for public content.
For new ATSU websites and ATSU website redesigns, Communication & Marketing and/or ITS will consult with you and your team, and recommend a tool and the work process involved with successfully completing your website project.
