Web Platform

 

A NEW, MODERN, AND SECURE DIGITAL PLATFORM

 

The Web Platform is an enterprise website content management system for the Health Sciences at UCLA. The new platform enhances websites in the UCLA ecosystem with modern designs, engaging features and functionality, and branding that aligns with the broader UCLA aesthetic.

Modern designs
Pre-configured, modern templates for basic pages, articles/blogs, people profiles, events, and image galleries
Security
A secure, HIPAA-compliant environment with direct control for site managers to create and modify user accounts
Layout options
Robust layout and configuration options to accommodate the diverse needs of Health Sciences schools and departments

 

Introduction to Web Platform 

We created this knowledge base with guidance and support from our UC Davis and UCLA main campuses. This site will grow iteratively as we roll out this new service to the UCLA Health Sciences.

We have already started to migrate the UCLA Health Sciences departments to the Web Platform. 

We encourage you to review the Glossary of Terms and Roles and Permissions Matrix to see what kind of work you'll likely be assigned to do in your site. This will help you understand the scope of the training you'll need.
