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.
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.
This is a great place to get started! Get a quick overview of the Web Platform. This section also includes information on the types of pages you can create and/or edit along with best practices.
Managing a Site
This section generally applies to users responsible for managing a site. It provides information on configuring your site, general functionality, and user accounts.
For Self-Service Sites
This section provides general information for departments that would like to build their own Web Platform with internal resources and/or the support of an external vendor. The checklist is a work in progress and will evolve.
