The Digital Communications Group offers a range of services to NYU administrative offices, schools and global sites. The primary focus is on providing guidance and support to all of the universities communities and constituents to ensure relevant content, consistent branding and messaging are properly communicated.
To request one of these services, please fill out the Project Request form.
Whether you are on-boarding new content or refreshing existing content, NYU's enterprise web content management system (CMS) is a powerful tool to help groups communicate.
Individual CMS orientation sessions can be scheduled, schedule permitting, or will be built into project plans when DigiComm on-boards new organizations.
Does your page need a design makeover? Resources to help modify your existing design or create a new one to fit within the system are available.
Visitors need to quickly find what they are looking for and organization is key. If you are planning to re-structure your content and pages, Digital Communications can organize it to ensure it makes sense.
Do you need help updating or editing your content? Annually, the Digital Communications team reviews NYU.edu and can assist or provide tips that could be helpful to create quality content for your page or site.
The NYU.edu site uses a 960 Grid in all of its CMS-driven pages. There are a variety of 5 column grid templates available in the CMS to be used across NYU.edu. You can get information on the available custom templates and how to select the right template for your needs.
If you are unable to use one of these, or it doesn’t suit your needs or strategy, you can request a custom template.
Need to change the series of approvals for when you publish content?
We can build out a custom error page with a specific message.
Is a link not working or going to a dead page? We can fix it or redirect users somewhere else.
Web analytics is the combination of web reporting with metrics to gain insight for driving web business decisions
Urchin is the web reporting tool used for NYU. Do you have questions about implementation or individual department or unit web reports?
Need to setup a redirect or vanity URL?
We can suggest and provide best practices to help you use these channels effectively, protect reputation, and follow University guidelines.
The NYU Search Engine utilizes proprietary technology developed by Google. While we cannot control the results populated, we can advise you on how to have better content to improve your rankings or even possibly have a suggested link at the top of the results.
The University has developed Graphic Guidelines which includes Style Guides, Typography, Color Palettes and Logo Usage. It is critical that the visual elements that represent the University and its image do so consistently and with integrity.
The University Events Calendar serves as NYU's central source for event information. Any NYU group or department can designate an Administrator, who can submit group events to the website.
DigiComm is working towards bringing the University Events Calendar into the Content Management System by January 2012. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for help adding an event or fill out the Project Request Form to set up an administrator.
