The Umeå University web page – umu.se – is a place primarily aimed at external visitors. The intranet Aurora supports our employees and the student web supports our students.
The new web should provide an attractive image of Umeå University. It should be simple, efficient and effective. It should demonstrate the high quality research and education that the University provides and our contributions to develop people and society.
Web editors (webbredaktörer) and content managers (innehållsansvariga) find the information they need on the collaboration site Webbpublicering. This is also where this group will receive updates on the web organisation, content management on umu.se, changes and new Episerver functionality. The collaboration site is accessible to all employees. Although, information is only published in Swedish. Instructions and manuals are located on the Manuals platform. Manuals are often available in English. Contact Servicedesk if a manual you need is not available in English. Both web editors and content managers must take training before they can take their roles.
New web launched in 2018
In 2018, the old content management tool Infoglue was exchanged for a more modern tool called Episerver. In December, all departments and sections had completed their migration to the new system. Some schools and institutes currently use the system Umbraco and will be migrating and launching their new web pages in Episerver in 2019. Web pages in Wordpress and Joomla are currently unaffected.
