For some time now, those of us in Academic Technology at Palomar College have wanted to make a web content management system available to faculty and staff. After literally years of trying out different platforms, we have chosen to use WordPress. Details will be forthcoming about how to get your own WordPress site at Palomar College. In the meantime, here is some information that you may find useful:
What is a web content management system and why do I need one?
Ideally, a CMS will make it easy for someone to publish your content without having to worry about the details of web design. A user can post to a blog, share files, or add links with very little technical knowledge.
We chose WordPress as our platform because it is easy to use, very popular (therefore well tested and supported), and free.
WordPress.org has a page with information about all of its features.
