Faculty and staff often visit the Educational Technology Center (ETC) asking for an easy way to post their research or academic project information. Up until now, faculty and staff were asked to use the MSU Denver Directory tool that provides the capability to post basic information or to use Rowdy which offers a sophisticated web development environment. That’s where sites.msudenver.edu comes in.
The new system is built using the latest multi-site implementation of WordPress, which is an enterprise-class content management system designed to publish websites and blogs. WordPress has been installed on over 60 million servers and is sophisticated enough to host large-scale websites, such as that of Boise State.
In fact, sites.msudenver.edu offers faculty and staff over 30 visual themes, so websites can reflect their creator’s and audience’s needs. Additional themes and custom plugins can be added by contacting the ETC at www.msudenver.edu/etc or by calling 303-556-3600.
To get started, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 303-352-7548 or submit a service request form.
