Content Management at UBC's Okanagan campus

A Content Management System (CMS) allows non-technical individuals the ability to update the content of websites without having to know how to program or write HTML, the coding language used to develop websites. Individuals who have responsibility for their website content are empowered to maintain the text, images, and layout themselves, without having to pass the content to a ‘webmaster’ for posting.
