Web Content Management System

This page provides an overview of the benefits of implementing a Web Content Management System and why the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development needs to implement a CMS.

The target audience of this page is the content developer of the web sites for use by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

These are generic Knowledge Sharing and Collaboration Unit standards and so there may be some exceptions to these standards. If the web site being developed should not or cannot conform to these standards, please contact the KSCU Team.

Web Content Management System

Web content management systems make managing content on your web sites quicker and easier. They help automate the technical aspects of web publishing, thereby giving you greater access to and control of the content on your web sites. After all, your expertise is in the content on your web site, not necessarily in the technical aspects of web publishing!

Web content management systems provide a set of tools and processes that make web publishing more accessible to DEECD business units by enabling:

Quick publishing
makes publishing your content on the web quick and easy without needing much technical knowledge about web publishing tools
Automated approval process
means online approval and automatic publication of changes and new content
Standards and compliance management.
will be less of a headache! It will help ensure that information on your web site is kept current, accurate and compliant to government standards by providing controls and processes which take the worry out of publishing to the web

Why does DEECD need a Web Content Management System?

The Department's web presence is the public face of the Department and is increasingly the first place people go to get information. It is vital that the Department's web sites are up to date, accurate and that their content is relevant and complies to relevant standards. It is therefore critical that business units are able to manage the content on their sites effectively without needing to be expert in the technologies of web publishing and the standards required by legislation, policy or guidelines.

For the Web CMS we are splitting the images into two folders. One is a folder called /content and the other one called /template. All content images are to go in the /content folder and all presentation images are to go in the /template folder.
