Drupal for Higher Education Websites
Drupal is far and above the most used CMS in higher education - 26% of all .edu domain websites are in Drupal, including 71 of the top 100 universities.
Higher Education with Drupal
University or college’s websites often serve as a first point of contact for prospective students. Their purpose is to find information about the educational institutions and its offerings and research activities. Furthermore, the website supports the use of online education so that students and lecturers can do their work at flexible locations at different times.
Therefore educational institutions have different requirements for their websites than companies as their services are often more broad and complexed. But how can these complexed requirements be easily implemented? 1xINTERNET uses OpenEDU, the Drupal-based solution for educational websites.
