The University has selected Jadu as its new content management system. The Jadu CMS contains modules for forms, search, mobile and other extended functionality. They are a partner with SunGard and offer integration with Banner. In addition, Jadu offers widgets for:
- Special interest features such as profiles and spotlights
- News listings
- Social media
- Rss feeds
Fordham IT will be implementing Jadu along with the new design templates and content next summer. We are aware that users are very eager to move away from the current content management system, but inputting the current templates and current content is not an efficient use of time and resources due to its volume.
The good news is that when the time comes, our team will establish a migration schedule for all departments and schools and will migrate department and school content into the new system.
In-person training will be held for department and school web editors in advance of their content migration. In addition, advanced training and online resources will be made available.
