Throughout the year, Web Services works hard to ensure the best experience for the CSUSB community through our campus website.

Currently, the Web Services team, including 5 interns, are working to convert all old CSUSB sites to the Drupal application. Information transferred or applied include but are not limited to; FAQs, meeting minutes for the department, employee spotlights and much more. Web Services is close to having all old sites converted into Drupal. At the moment, they have converted 192 sites out of 250. The team hopes to have them all completed by the Summer of 2018.

Recently, they have inputted the CSUSB “news feed” into the RSS feed which allows the information to be transferred to “Alexa,” the new Amazon gadget.  Ask Alexa, “what is new on the CSUSB campus” and she’ll respond with an answer. For an example check out the ITS Support Instagram account at “CSUSBSupport.”

In the future, Web Services would like to work closely with the campus Police Department. They plan to create a form on Drupal which will allow notifications to be sent to the CSUSB community automatically.
