Q: What is WebGarage?
A: WebGarage is Stetson University's in-house web site content management system. It's purpose it to provide campus wide web site consistency and to empower everyone on campus to participate on the web with little or no experience needed.
Q: Why should my department use WebGarage?
A: Departments are encouraged to use WebGarage so that their web site has the same look and feel as what is being marketed to the public through the University. This allows end users who have never been to your web site before to feel familiar with your web site. Furthermore, with it's ease-of-use, WebGarage will allow anyone in your department to edit the department's web site if called upon without any software installation, thus allowing for the content to be easily kept up-to-date.
Q: When can I start using WebGarage?
A: Depends. If your web site is already in a WebGarage format and you just need access then all you need is permission from your department chair and a quick training session. If your website is not WebGarage based then it will first need to be converted in order to work. Fortunately, this is something we can help with. Just use the contact form and let us know that you are interested in using WebGarage for your web site.
Q: Where can I access WebGarage?
A: WebGarage can be located at: https://secure.stetson.edu/programs/webgarage/.
Q: How do I use WebGarage?
A: WebGarage is fairly easy to learn. That being said, we do require a mandatory one hour training session before you first use WebGarage so that by the time you get to your WebGarage website you can hit the ground running. We also offer hands on tutorials for those who want to get a jump on the training or simply forgot something in the training. If all else fails, we are here to answer and questions you may have.
