Departmental Web pages

The University is in the midst of a move into a content management system. Anyone looking to create a new official website for WMU should first contact web and electronic communications.

Software

The recommended and supported product to create and manage Web sites at WMU is Dreamweaver*. This product may be purchased at an educational discount through the University. More info... 

*Because of the move into a CMS, check with web and electronic communications before purchasing Dreamweaver for a departmental website.

Another package that is very useful in working with, or creating images, is Adobe PhotoShop Elements. More info...

Free alternatives to Dreamweaver and Photoshop are:

  • GIMP (a Photoshop/Photoshop Elements alternative)
  • NVU (a Web editing software)
