What is the CMS?
Wikipedia defines CMS as follows:
A Web Content Management System (WCM, WCMS or Web CMS) is content management system (CMS) software, implemented as a Web application, for creating and managing HTML content. It is used to manage and control a large, dynamic collection of Web material (HTML documents and their associated images). A WCMS facilitates content creation, content control, editing, and essential Web maintenance functions.

The Cerritos College CMS makes maintaining web pages simple. All web authoring is done on campus or at home using a standard web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox and without the need for other applications such as Microsoft FrontPage/Expression/SharePoint or Adobe Dreamweaver. The CMS is free to use for Cerritos College employees whether on campus or away from home.
Web administration has developed a web-based Content Management System with the following goals and benefits:
The CMS is available to other colleges and institutions at no cost. Cerritos College is seeking development partners with the goal of sustaining this tool which is vital to upholding web accessibility and other web standards and practices at Cerritos College and any who use it.
