Training and Tools

Website management

The content management system (CMS) is Bowdoin's tool for editing web pages and it is available to faculty, staff, and students. Academic departments and administrative offices are encouraged to update and maintain their own websites using the CMS, and several training classes are available each semester to help with that process. Whether you're new to the CMS, you'd like additional help, or you want to send a student for training, we welcome you to attend one of our classes.

Web widgets and tools

We offer a number of tools and resources to help promote your news and event and make your website easier to update, more current, and useful to your site's visitors. Submit a request if you have questions or would like us to implement a tool on your site.
