With the number of departments, programs, and classes involved, colleges and universities need a flexible and powerful Digital Experience Platform (DXP) to engage students better and improve enrollment. The platform should be easy on maintenance, provide the ability to create or edit content with limited developer support, and deliver high performance. Additionally, as the communication between faculties and students are happening primarily thru digital channels since the pandemic, the platform must have the ability to scale up to the demands.
Drupal is an efficient and powerful DXP that offers flexibility, scalability, and security in one place that is why 71 of the top 100 universities like Stanford, Purdue, George Washington University, Virginia Tech, RACC, Reconnection Institute use it today!
Drupal architecture provides the ability to host multiple websites as it comes with a single code base. The codes, components, modules, and themes can be reused across different websites providing a unified experience for the users. Further, if all individual websites run on one platform, it will be easy to maintain and reduce cost.
When comes to time-to-market, one of the daunting challenges for any large universities and educational institutions is the ability to update or publish new content, launch new landing pages, add videos, gallery, etc. quickly and with limited developer support. As Drupal provides code-less content authoring support, individual departments and teams can create content with ease.
