Web :: Moving Your Site to Drupal

Because Drupal is a complete web platform management system licensed for use across the Humboldt State University campus, you'll find it very easy and intuitive to use to develop new sites. However, converting existing sites to Drupal will take some time; we found that on average it takes people unfamiliar with Drupal about 3.5 hours to transfer a 15-page site. You can choose to transfer your site to Drupal at any time; it's more important to ensure that your site meets accessibility requirements.

Accessibility :: Website Development for Accessibility

The Internet is one of the most important communications media used at Humboldt State University. It connects users to information sources and to each other, delivers coursework, and enables self-service administrative tasks such as registering for classes. Web pages must be reasonably accessible to enable students, faculty, staff, and the general public to participate fully in the HSU community.

It can be difficult for an organization to perform a self-assessment unless there is some outside agency that can provide guidance on the factors that should be considered. This section provides the answers to 35 questions students should ask about technology at any school they are considering attending. The questions were developed by EDUCAUSE with the cooperation of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO).
