Creating a Website: Using the Dynamic Services (Portal)

PCC has a content management system that allows faculty, staff and management to access and update certain web content via any browser. Each faculty and employee has a web site linked from the directory listing that is editable via the content management system. In addition, all the events and headlines you see on our site are input through this system. A tutorial for the system is available here to get you started.


Through the Portal content management system faculty can maintain their contact information, office hours, a photo, a biography or curriculum vitae, syllabi and course pages, schedule class events, link to a personal web site and create press releases or news.


Using our content management database, staff and management can generate event items, important date items such as academic deadlines, publish department contact info, office hours and special hours like tutoring schedules, create and maintain a set of frequently asked questions, publish press releases or news and announcements. The advantage of using the content management system to create content is that it can then be displayed in many places, such as in the main PCC calendar of events as well as the department's news and events page. The information displayed can be tailored as needed for each department. Email the web producer at the New Media Center to discuss your needs.
