Higher education institutions need intelligent content just as much as any business or other organization. Why? Because higher education institutions support a number of channels that reach out to students, alumni, parents, faculty and administration and they need to ensure those experiences are consistent in terms of the content they provide. In this blog, we look at three examples where intelligent content makes the student experience better.
In the business world, there is a big demand for headless content management. Headless CMS helps businesses to meet the intense content demands placed on them by enabling them to create content once and make it available to all channels using an API. Do higher education institutes have the same challenge? We think so. Here are just a few reasons why headless matters in Higher Education.

And their responses didn’t disappoint. Read this article to find out what industry experts see as important for the year ahead – then decide for yourself how to incorporate these trends and strategies in your own work.
What is the difference between traditional, headless and hybrid content management system? Why would you choose one over the other? We addressed these questions in a recent webinar with the help of Tony White, founder of Ars Logica, a consulting and advisory firm in Boston. In the webinar, our Vice President of Product Development, Nathan Eggen also provided a few examples of headless and hybrid CMS to help you understand how each works. Read on for a full recap of the webinar, then watch the recording for yourself!
2018 brought some web experience management challenges for higher education institutions. Web professionals must navigate managing their public website, maintaining their Student Portal, and keeping up with all of the twists and turns brought about by data privacy laws and web accessibility standards. Priorities in web experience management have also shifted, as portals and intranets continue to be important tools for supporting students, alumni, and staff. In this blog, we take a look back at how the digital landscape changed for .EDUs in 2018.
If we’ve learned one thing this year, it’s that every organization is struggling to wear multiple digital hats. Customers expect a consistent experience across many channels – the website, portal, web applications and so on and organizations are trying to figure out the right strategy and tools to make that happen. In this blog, we take a look back at all of the lessons we learned in 2018 and how they're shaped our new digital experience toolbox.
In the final installment of our series on intelligent content management, we’ll take a look at ways to deliver content. The key to delivering content intelligently is to find an approach that allows you to deliver content to multiple channels and devices. The hybrid approach to content management (i.e. using a hybrid CMS solution) supports this delivery model. In this blog, we'll take a closer look at ways to deliver content in an intelligent content management sytem, like a hybrid CMS.
A large part of an intelligent content strategy is thinking strategically about how and where you store your content. Without a good storage and repository strategy, content can quickly become ineffective and actually start to work against you. In part three of this Ingeniux blog series on intelligent content strategy, we take a closer look at the different ways to store content in an intelligent content management system and best practices for storing content efficiently and effectively.
The main component of intelligent content management is the content model. A content model defines the type of content you create, how to structure that content, and how to create metadata to associate with the content. We call this an “intelligent content model,” and when you build your content model following this structured approach, you create content that is reusable across channels. Learn more about content modeling using a structured - or intelligent- approach in the second installment in our series on intelligent content management.
