The Office of Marketing and Communications is home to a small group of web developers. The web team is responsible for developing and maintaining the College’s overall web presence and their expertise is a resource for the entire Florida Southern community.
The web team has expertise on topics including content strategy, design, information architecture, and site usage statistics (analytics). We are happy to talk with you about the Florida Southern content management system (CMS), department and office sites, or other web-related topics.
Our work is focused on:
The web team maintains the college’s web publishing infrastructure in conjunction with Office of Information Technology Services.
Our websites can host small photo galleries, but if you have a lot of images and need powerful organizational tools, you will want to use the Florida Southern Digital Asset Management system.
Website development and maintenance is, of course, just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to technological needs of the Florida Southern community. These are some related services that are outside our responsibility:
The Office of Marketing and Communications, with guidance from the college’s Information Technology Services department, oversees Florida Southern Colleges’ web presence. These policies are intended to clarify how these resources may be used and what options are available to those publishing content on the web.
The majority of sites hosted by the college and managed by the web development team have URLs based on the college’s top-level domain (TLD): flsouthern.edu. These URLs take two different forms depending on their purpose and the server on which they are hosted:
The domain, www.flsouthern.edu, precedes the website grouping and the name of the site, again with no spaces or special characters.
URLs of this type are available to sites described by one of these criteria:
Short marketing links are available upon request. The College maintains a master list and allocates high value URLs at its discretion.
The name of the site, without spaces or special characters, precedes the college domain. These are reserved for integrating a third-party service more seamlessly into the Florida Southern website.
The use of subdomains are discouraged and require special permission from Information Technology Services.
