Allegheny College, Maryville University and University of Mary Washington are three completely different institutions with one thing in common: they are all using the world’s most popular blogging system as their content management system (CMS). Although all three institutions are using WordPress as their CMS (or, at least, will be by the time this presentation is made), they have all implemented it in very different ways. There are a handful of major obstacles many institutions point out when considering WordPress as a CMS, and, collectively, we’ve encountered them all. Throughout this presentation, we’ll discuss the processes our institutions went through when choosing to use WordPress as its CMS, how we’ve overcome (or eliminated) many of the perceived obstacles in using WordPress, the unique processes we’ve used in implementing it, the challenges we’ve faced throughout the process and the benefits we’ve reaped from that decision. Is WordPress the right CMS for your institution? Maybe, maybe not. Regardless, you should know what you’re getting into (for better or worse) before you make that decision; and we’ll be here to help you out with that.
