For colleges, units and departments at the University of Georgia looking for a Content Management System (CMS), EITS offers OmniUpdate, a CMS specializing in higher education institutions.
OmniUpdate is a cloud-based CMS that allows account owners to manage multiple sites, pages and users. It also features easy editing tools for content contributors and editors, a workflow process for creating and editing content, and additional tools.
EITS offers OmniUpdate as an option for UGA colleges, units and departments.
OmniUpdate is currently available to UGA colleges, units and departments on a limited basis, as part of an ongoing pilot program. Websites for individual faculty are not available for the pilot.
EITS is offering the OmniUpdate pilot on a limited basis in order to coordinate resources and business needs across the University.
Interested UGA colleges, units and departments may learn more about OmniUpdate and what EITS offers by contacting Robert Ethier in EITS at firstname.lastname@example.org. The EITS web team is available to learn about your unit’s needs and provide a presentation on OmniUpdate.
UGA colleges, units and departments using OmniUpdate are given a dedicated account on the CMS to manage. For each account, participating clients must name a top-level administrator, who will have access to create sites and manage users within their account. Top-level account administrators must also receive OmniUpdate training from EITS and adhere to appropriate policies.
EITS provides support for use of the OmniUpdate interface and hosting of web pages created and maintained through OmniUpdate. EITS also offers training for top-level administrators and new users.
However, EITS does not provide web site design and creation. Local databases, database services, and direct administrative or terminal access are also not available through this service.
Colleges, units and departments interested in OmniUpdate are encouraged to contact EITS for an overview and additional questions.
