What is it?
MSU’s website is managed through a Content Management System (CMS) that allows individuals who may or may not know web programming languages to create and manage web content with relative ease. It is important you are familiar with web browsers and word processors as the CMS uses a word processor much like Microsoft Word. If you need a refresher please review Help Center documentation, What skills do I need in order to use the CMS?.
MSU uses OU Campus, a system produced by OmniUpdate, in order to provide a CMS for
montana.edu web domain. Web & Digital Communications creates initial pages in the CMS and provides
ongoing support, but after an introductory training you are responsible for keeping
your pages current and up to date.
For more on how the CMS came to MSU, please refer to the CMS Project Background.
How do I use it?
The first step in using the CMS is registering for a training. Visit CMS 110: Introduction to the CMS to view the upcoming schedule and get registered.
