Things You Need To Know: Talking Points To Share
  • iFactory is the design agency that will assist us with the look and feel of the site.

  • Omni Update is the vendor and developer of the content management system (CMS).

  • The web servers will be cloud-based for improved performance and disaster preparedness.

  • We are focused on redesigning these sections using a phased approach: We will maintain the current site using OpenText until we can move sections to the new CMS. Site editors can continue making edits without interruption.

    • Homepage, About, Academics, Admissions, Advancement, Calendar, Campus Life, News, Research - plus ALL top level sections of the college websites. Other sections will follow in phase two and beyond.
  • Phase one is planned for a Summer 2017 launch.
  • We are redesigning the website to strengthen the FGCU brand, make it mobile friendly and fully accessible using ADA 508/WCAG 2 standards.

  • The CMS will be much easier to use than the current system and it will provide capabilities to publish content more efficiently with many drag-and-drop features.

  • Built-in testing tools will help minimize spelling, ADA 508 accessibility, and broken link issues before pages are published to high quality content on every page.

  • A core website redesign team will serve as ambassadors on the project to keep the FGCU campus community informed.

  • In the coming weeks, the website redesign team will contact site editors and department leaders to begin the steps for updating content and preparing to move to the new website.

  • New CMS training resources will be shared with site editors to get a preview of the new software called OU Campus. (OU = Omni Update)
