How content is maintained on the AAMU website
AAMU's institutional web site is a primary source of information from AAMU to the public. All business units should have a presence in the institutional Web site.
AAMU uses OmniUpdate's OU Campus content management system (CMS) to implement its institutional Web site. The CMS supplies colleges, departments, faculty and staff tools necessary to publish an easy-to-maintain and standards-compliant Web site. The CMS is completely web based and does not require additional software. The CMS is simple to learn for people not trained in web development. These features make using a CMS a cost effective solution to managing a large web ecosystem.
Each department is required to maintain their own content on the AAMU website. Departments may appoint a single or multiple users to attend the required website training in order to maintain their departmental website. If the deparment has not appointed a designated website content manager the department may send the required website edits to email@example.com. These submitted web edits will be created on a first come first serve basis and time permitting by the ITS Web and Communications team.
Due to our recent ADA Accessibility Resolution Agreement with the Department of Education Office of Civil Rights. All AAMU web content must meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. To help enforce this requirement all submitted web content will be check by the ITS Web and Communications team before the content is published to the live AAMU website. If the content does not meet the required guidlines the content will need to be remediated by the departmental content manager.
