Computing Services offers various web publishing tools for those who would like to establish web presence at the university whether it be for an official, personal, course-related, or student organizational site. The right web publishing tool for you depends on your needs and the type of content you plan to publish.
To achieve the look and feel of Carnegie Mellon University's official web presence, you may choose to create and publish your site through the Content Management System (CMS). The CMS separates content, or the information contained on a site, from
presentational elements such as fonts, colors, styles, and page layout.
Through the CMS you can easily manage your content without having to
know about the design or the technical aspects of building a site from
scratch. The CMS is available to all academic and administrative
departments, research groups, centers, and labs provided that they have
official recognition by the university.
The Andrew Web Publishing System (AWPS) is a self-service publishing method offered to those who would like to design and develop their own websites from scratch and need server space on the www.cmu.edu domain to host it. AWPS is available to all academic and administrative departments, research groups, centers, and labs provided that they have official recognition by the university.
