OmniUpdate Campus (OU) is the campus web content management system (CMS). This support site provides step-by-step procedures and video tutorials for getting started with OU version 10.

Overview
The OU interface provides an intuitive way to manage web pages.  OU consists of a tabbed interface where each tab includes a horizontal menu. Clicking on a menu item reveals a panel that includes elements to deeper levels of functionality, for tasks such as editing pages and uploading new image files.


New Content
Content can created and managed within the Pages list view of the CMS. By navigating to Content > Pages, a user may create new pages and folders. The system is configured with templates, which are used to create new sections and pages. For more information about setting up new content, please see:
