Content Management System Ownership
All, Houston Community College uses a content management system (CMS) for our main Internet website. The CMS was implemented in 2008 and is managed by central Information Technology. The content for the first level of the main site is managed by our Communications/Public Relations department with content for second level and below being maintained by content owners at each college or by major departments such as Student Services, Human Resources, Finance, etc. At this point IT maintains the servers, database, CMS, access, and all template development. Our Communications/Public Relations department is interested in taking ownership of the CMS administration, access control, and all development. Questions: 1. Who at your institution manages the CMS application upgrades and patches? 2. Who is responsible for granting and maintaining access for the content contributors? 3. Who does CMS training for content contributors? 4. Who does template development and modifications? 5. Who manages the database? 6. What involvement does your Communications/Public Relations department have kin your CMS or website? 7. What is IT's role in the institutions website development? Thank you, Bill Bill Carter Vice Chancellor of IT Houston Community College ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
