Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We launched OU Campus in February of 2015, along with a responsive redesign of our main site. We have a web staff of two, but I was able to train over 100 content owners across campus in a very short time. Since we've launched, OU Campus has been so well received that we are currently working to move our Alumni & Development sites into the CMS. Purchasing OU Campus was a great decision. The learning curve for non-technical users is very small, and our campus community loves using OU. On the technical side, template creation can be a little difficult, but the customer service is top notch. I can count on someone to answer any question I have quickly and effectively.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our university uses OU Campus to edit web pages for all departments and colleges. It is used to divide each of our six colleges each with their own editors and content creators. These individuals will have different permissions based on their role in the university to edit pages; edit pages and submit them to "publishers" or edit everything. It is very flexible in the sense that it is scalable so there isn't just one person editing everything all the time.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

OU Campus is the primary interface through which our public website(s) are edited and upon which web content is managed for our entire organization. Although there has been no real support 'from the top' of the organization regarding this product's adoption across our institution, OU Campus use has spread by word of mouth, and prospective users contact me on a regular basis requesting training on and access to the system for editing their website content. To date, we have had a 100% user adoption rate across the campus. Basically, everyone who has started using OU Campus is still using it today. The specific business problems that OU Campus continues to address are: (1) empowering users and content contributors campus wide to manage the content on their respective web pages, (2) decreasing the amount of time it takes for new content to be published live to our website, and (3) our public website content is more fresh, relevant and accurate as a direct result.

OU Campus is used exclusively throughout Southeastern. I manage our scholarship, financial aid, work study, and veteran services web site. It has proven to be a much easier user friendly product than what we previously employed.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

OU Campus is being used to create links for professors, faculty, staff and community members to see viable information for our department and it is being used across the whole organization. The only business problem that OU Campus address is the ability to upload materials to the web in a matter of seconds. The only problem that I have with OU campus is not being able to upload the same document without changing the original document name. If OU campus would allow users to keep the original name and upload the document, then I would love it.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I worked as a Web Developer at The College at Brockport for over 3 years. During that time I maintained both departments' websites and main university web pages. I also taught many department leads core web skills so that they can take the bulk of maintaining their own web sites. Initially, we were plain HTML/JavaScript shop. It was very difficult for non-tech people to understand how the web works and how web pages need to be created and updated. Once we introduced OU Campus Content Management System, we saw a dramatic change. Not only it was very very easy for us to train non-tech people basic web development skills, but also many more employees wanted to learn such skills. OU Campus builds and offers fantastic software. In my experience and the experience of those whom I thought how to use it, the Content Management System offered by OU Campus is very intuitive and easy to use. It has a nice user interface, and great documentation explaining the user how to use each feature the user is interested in. With OU Campus Content Management System creating and maintaining web pages is a breeze. I would totally recommend it to anybody who wants to save time creating and updating web content.
