Web CMS

OU Campus™ is the #1 web CMS of choice for higher ed web professionals around the globe.

College WebsitesYour institution's website is your greatest marketing and recruitment asset, but managing it is no small feat. With the right web content management system (CMS) in place though, it can be an easy one. Enter OU Campus. Designed from the ground up with features and modules unique to higher education, OU Campus meets all your web content management needs.

Just as every institution is different, so is each CMS implementation—a CMS should not be a one-size-fits-all solution. We work with each customer to scope out their individual needs, from implementation to support, and we develop a plan from there. An OU Campus purchase includes full implementation, deployment, and hands-on training. And since needs vary, our pricing model reflects those needs and is designed to match accordingly.

  

CMS users of all types benefit from our feature-rich solution:

Content Contributors

With overwhelming buy-in by higher ed users, OU Campus puts the power of content management in the hands of those who need it the most—your content contributors. Your contributors will benefit from how easy it is to create new pages, edit images, drag and drop content, and so much more.
