Higher Education institutions using the open source Content Management System Drupal are capitalizing on the opportunity to deliver digital experiences that are more personalized and relevant, and they're doing it faster than ever thought possible through the power of the assembled web.
One of the most successful digital platforms in higher education, Stanford Sites, was built leveraging Drupal. Combining community functionality with a shared services model, Stanford Sites allows campus members to easily build brand-standard sites that suit their individual needs. The platform in turn gives the university the ability to manage those sites at scale with governance and security in mind.
The central tenants of Stanford Sites are catching on, and we will also discuss dozens of other institutions using Drupal to build out centralized digital platforms. The presentation will help highlight opportunities for platforms by looking at your institution's digital landscape from a centralized lens. Learn about:
• Enhancing student, alumni and professor engagement
• Streamlining costs (& maintenance) of web properties
• Bringing content, community and commerce more tightly together
In this webinar Zach Chandler from Stanford University will discuss Stanford Sites, lessons learned during design and implementation and tips on building out a shared services model in a large, sprawling institution. Chris Hartigan, head of Acquia's higher education practice will also share key takeaways from Acquia's experience powering more than 500 higher education institutions around the world.
