Cascade CMS is the university's content management system (CMS). It is a web-based tool supported by IT's Web Technologies group and University Marketing's Web and New Media team. The CMS is available to all academic and administrative units and provides a quick and easy way to create web content that is appropriately branded.
Creating a Site
Sites can be created as new sites within the CMS or content from existing UH sites, can be migrated into the CMS. Contact Robert Birkline to discuss setting up a new account. Web content can be published to central IT servers or to a server maintained externally that has PHP implemented.
CMS training is offered monthly and is provided by UIT through the TSS's Web Technologies group. Completion of a training session is required to obtain authoring, editing, and publishing access to the CMS. Contact Patty Schwerin and/or visit the UIT Site for Cascade CMS training information.
