Our Web service supports the College of Education & Human Development’s Web presence. Our sites are part of Georgia State University’s collection of websites. The content management system we use is WordPress.
Our websites are virtual portals to the College and our programs for an external audience. The function of our sites is to attract prospective students — both undergraduate and graduate.
Web accessibility is important to maintain so that people with disabilities who use the Web will enjoy ease of use. While the university has made our WordPress websites accessible, we need to be mindful of the multimedia and documents we upload to our sites.
We will offer training on occasion.

Some of our departments hire GRAs to help with Web upkeep and content creation, others have one of their administrators handle it and others utilize their faculty. However you do it, your person will need training on how to maintain, update and create new content for your website. You can arrange training with [email protected]. Chris Ross at Georgia State’s digital office also holds regular training on Teams.
