Cal State LA uses Drupal as the web platform for developing university websites. This web platform provides the campus community the tools they need to create and maintain web content without using any external applications or the need to know any programming languages. Users can manage their website via a web browser from any computer with an internet connection. This makes it easier and more efficient to access and update content. This website provides the campus community with one central location for all Cal State LA web platform training and support resources.
These guides include step-by-step instructions and video tutorials on how to use the Cal State LA web platform to create and maintain university websites.
