Example Scenario: A university updates its history page to include recent achievements and accolades. Through Content Sync, this updated content is automatically reflected across hundreds of college, department, and program sites. Content Sync’s compatibility guarantee with all contrib and custom modules ensures that the updated content is consistent.

Composable Content

A central repository allows department editors to share and update standard content elements like course description paragraphs. Other departments can easily find and import these elements to quickly create new content like specific course listings.

Example Scenario: The Science Department updates a standard paragraph detailing the prerequisites for a new advanced biology course. This component is shared in the central repository. The Biology and Environmental Science departments can then import this updated component to quickly update their course listings, ensuring consistency in course information across departments or sites. Customization is available for each site to add specific faculty names or lab requirements.

Content Cloud API

Enhance app development process by aggregating content from various departmental Drupal sites for a unified content repository with rapid content delivery leveraging auto-generated client libraries and a responsive image API.

Example Scenario: Aiming to globally engage prospective students, a university sets out to upgrade its digital offerings. It focuses on creating a series of applications, such as a virtual campus tour and a student portal, which require up-to-date, rich content from across its departments. Leveraging Content Sync’s Content Cloud, the university aggregates this content, ensuring it’s readily available and optimized for users worldwide, regardless of device. This approach allows for rapid development and deployment of high-quality, interactive applications. As a result, prospective students enjoy a comprehensive digital experience that showcases the university’s facilities, programs, and campus life, significantly enhancing the institution’s appeal and streamlining the recruitment process.

Content Repositories

Faculty or department editors publish general educational content, such as course descriptions or research findings, into a central repository. Editors from different departments can search for and import this content into their local sites with ease, customizing it to add department-specific details or insights.

Example Scenario: A university’s central science department conducts groundbreaking research on climate change. The findings are summarized and published in the central content repository. Editors from the Environmental Studies, Geography, and Public Policy departments import the summary into their respective sites. Each adds their own contextual information, such as how the research impacts their specific field of study or suggestions for coursework that aligns with these findings. This allows for the broad dissemination of significant research while enabling each department to highlight its relevance to their disciplines.
