Web Communication Technologies (WebTech)

WebTech provides web development services, web templates, and web training for the Western community. Our group was responsible for the new Western home page (2011), the new myWestern design (2013), the Western Template, college sites on the Drupal platform, the mobile app design, and most recently (2014), the new Admissions site. Our responsibilities include:

  • Develop and support the main Western website
  • Create and support tools and web templates for college, departmental, and personal sites
  • Collaborate with faculty and departments to develop and support software for special academic needs
  • Provide design and usability support for campus-wide tools (e.g. myWestern, universal login, etc)
  • Recommend web standards for usable, accessible, modern websites
  • Provide website help for the Western community via the webhelp@wwu.edu support line.
  • Provide training and classes for web staff on campus

Our templates, web standards, and help line are designed to make it easier for campus groups and individuals to create and maintain accessible, attractive, usable websites.

* Prior to July 2013, WebTech was Web Services within Academic Technology and User Services (ATUS).
