Drupal CMS

Drupal is the official open source content management system chosen for university-wide use. Some of the advantages of Drupal are:

User friendly interface:  While the developer side of Drupal requires a fair amount of web and programming skill to build the initial site, the interface for updating sites once they are created is user friendly and easy to learn.

Plenty of functionality is available to you at little cost. There are hundreds of free modules available that plug into Drupal adding complex programming features with very little effort, meaning that the cost of adding certain features to your site drops significantly. Some of the modules available include:

  • Site search

  • Calendar

  • Polls

  • Cat-ID secured content

  • Blogs

  • Photo galleries

  • Slideshows

With Drupal, it's easy to keep your content up to date. It just takes a minute to add new content. No html skills are required to update your site.

Centralized maintenance: The IT-Client Services Web Team keeps each Drupal site updated with the latest modules and themes. 

Security: The webteam works closely with IT-Security to make sure your Drupal site is secure from hackers and spammers.
