Our Website is Responsive
The layout and/or content responds (adapts) based on the size of the screen it’s presented on. A responsive website automatically changes to fit the device you’re reading it on. This includes desktop and laptop computers, iPads, Kindles, iPhones, Android phones, etc.
Our Website is Collaborative
Every single department at Marywood contributes to the information that is on our website. Each department has an assigned Web Content Editor that goes through CMS training to learn how to update our website. Web Services is here to support our content editors and any requests from departments. See Website Policies.
Our Website is Dynamic
On the Marywood website, we use chunks of content that are entered into a database using predefined fields. We refer to this as "structured content." By entering the information in this way, we are able to "spit out" the content in different ways. A few examples are:
- alphabetically ordered lists of faculty
- news and events sorted by date
- tagged news posts
Using databases makes it easier for our content editors to fill in the available fields (such as office location, e-mail address, and photos) and have all of that information display professionally on the site, in order, without having to know HTML or CSS to make it look right.
