Modules

OU Campus™ modules allow you to extend the functionality of the content management system (CMS) to optimize your web presence and better engage with your website visitors.

Just like OU Campus, our modules are designed specifically for the needs of higher education. You can build many of the modules below on your own with starter code from our GitHub repository, or let our team of experts do the work for you.

 

OU Search

When your website visitors can quickly and easily find what they are looking for, they are more likely to stay on your site. OU Search crawls web content that can’t be found via conventional HTML hyperlinks, helping information seekers find important material they might have otherwise missed. Customize the look and feel of search results, which file types and URL patterns to include, which results are highlighted or forced to the top using "best bets" and more.
