Maintaining Official Clark Web Sites

Choose a Web Content Manager
Each academic department and administrative office at Clark must select an individual who is responsible for maintaining the content on their official web site. Generally, the Web Content Manager or WebCM is a staff member within the department.

Existing Content/New Content
Web Content Managers are only responsible for editing existing content and keeping it up-to-date. The creation of new content should be discussed with University Communications and templates can be created for you prior to beginning any new content project.

Getting Permissions
All Web Content Managers must undergo a short introduction to the Clark template with Deirdre Ni Chonaill, the Web Manager in University Communications.

Software

Most WebCMs use Adobe Contribute which is managed by ITS.

Keep in mind though that no software is actually required to edit the official sites. If you know HTML and would like to just use a secure-FTP program like CyberDuck, you are welcome to use any code editor or text editor to edit your site. See connection info below.

Getting Connected

Clark ITS recommends Cyberduck which is cross-platform software. See the help document below:
