All web pages used to conduct core university business or academic activities should utilize the official UWG's web templates to maintain consistent branding standards. These templates are embedded in Omni Update Campus Content Management System and available to faculty and staff to develop and maintain their official unit’s website.
Individual non-CMS web pages published by students, employees or non-university organizations that are hosted by the university and do not conduct university business or academic activities are encouraged to adopt the university's web guidelines and best practices for non-CMS web pages. Authors interested in using the official campus web designs outside the OU Campus CMS should contact UCM web services before initiating such a project.
Units and individuals with third party web applications should contact UCM web services prior to approximating the look and feel of the campus templates through local design.
OU Campus CMS
OU Campus is a Content Management System. It is NOT an html editor or a site design software, such as Dreamweaver or Frontpage. The basic premise of the CMS is that users will follow a pre-defined template and manage the CONTENT of their website more so than the style and layout. This is critical for those departments who don’t have access to a full time web designer as it gives control to the general staff member who need not have a background in web design or development tools, such as html code, CSS, or PHP.
