WordPress is a web content management system and web site creation tool which allows users to easily maintain and create content on dynamic web sites. Provost IT provides hosted WordPress sites as a service to eligible departments and users.
WordPress sites can be used for a variety of purposes, from maintaining a department news site or blog to showcasing your department’s unique offerings, services or contact information. This web site, in fact, runs on WordPress, as do nearly one third of web sites on the internet. WordPress is quite popular at USC and among its users everywhere due to its ease-of-use, customizability, low cost and flexibility to meet department needs as content evolves.
Provost IT designs, develops and customizes WordPress web sites for supported departments on a per-site, per-project basis. Designing a site generally consists of scoping out technical requirements, generating content, coming up with a design, activating and testing each page, and then launching the site. Smaller sites may also be requested if the sponsoring user or department is already proficient in WordPress usage.
Provost IT hosts the majority of its WordPress sites on a cloud-based service, meaning they are secure, reliable and accessible from anywhere. WordPress sites and pages can also be password protected with individual user accounts, giving website administrators even more granularity about who they share content with.
