The Web Team has a wide and diverse experience with many technologies relating to the web. First and foremost, members of the web team are software developers and/or graphic designers. However, Web Team members are also skilled in a wide range of other technologies, including systems support, database administration, content management & search engine optimization, and IT strategists.
The Web Team has a diverse experience with many technologies relating to the web. Furthermore, there are many technologies and services administered by the ITS Web Team in order to facilitate a complete in-house solution for the College's needs. The services we support are:
Managed Web Space
Managed web hosting is provided by the ITS Web Team for the College website, Department websites, Center websites and various other institutes and programs. This managed web space is run on a combination of Cascade CMS and Django CMS which provides a simple to edit interface that requires no knowledge of HTML.
Faculty Web Space
Faculty within the College of Architecture are entitled to web space on the COA web servers for research and teaching purposes. ITS provides space, but does not provide content or design support for faculty personal web sites.
Research Web Space
Faculty and Research groups in the College of Architecture can be provided with a separate space for their research to be showcased. ITS provides space, but does not provide content or design support for the research web sites.
Wiki and Online Collaboration Spaces
In this day and age, information, requirements, policies, and procedures change at such a rapid pace. Furthermore, if the places you store this information is difficult or time-consuming to update, it likely is not getting done, thus degrading the value of doing business. Finally, sharing documents and collaborating changes with others becomes a nightmare, especially if the only sharing mechanism is e-mail. Atlassian Confluence helps ITS resolve all of these problems, and more. While we use various wikis (a.k.a. spaces) in Confluence to coordinate all of our documentation, its potential uses far exceed what it is currently being used for. To find out more about what Confluence can do for you, please see the Confluence Services page.
