Services

Web Design

The Web Services staff is primarily responsible for working with key stakeholders in departments and offices to create attractive, functional websites that meet the needs of those areas and of Wentworth. This process is collaborative. The department representative is responsible for determining site goals, providing insight into target audiences, and managing content. Web Services uses this information to create designs that are visually appealing, provide a positive user experience, and are sustainable by the web content manager with the department. 

Please note, Web Services does not create web site content. Content creation is the responsibility of the department or office.

Content Management System (CMS)

Wentworth uses Hannon Hill's Cascade Server as its content management system (CMS). This CMS was chosen because its interface is easy for web content managers to use, it requires no special software, and because of its backend flexibility. Visit the Resources section of this website for further information.

Blogs (blogs.wit.edu)

Wentworth offers WordPress blogs to departments, officially-recognized groups, and approved students. WordPress is a flexible, open-source blog system with strong community support.  Customized themes are provided to make it easy for bloggers to get up and running, but we will also install additional WordPress themes and plug-ins.

MyWeb is a central web server for faculty, staff, student, and organization sites at Wentworth. All members of the Wentworth community have MyWeb accounts.
