Third Party Tools
Web Services uses third party tools to make some things easier to manage on our website. One of the best examples is our events management tools. This tool allows us to use a secure website where users can freely submit events for review and then finally posted on our website. This makes it more efficient to manage events and doesn't keep the web team busy creating custom tools or pages for each event at Valencia College. There are more examples of the third party tools we use below. If you have any questions or suggestions, we want to hear from you. Please send us a note anytime using our contact form linked in the menu above.
Event CMS (Localist)
Our tool for managing all the events at Valencia college. Users can submit events for approval and once they are approved, they are linked on the website and portal.
Maps CMS (Campus Bird)
Campus Bird is a mapping tool that we can add all our location information in one place where users can explore each campus and all they have to offer. We are always building new content in our map. If you have a suggestion for locations on the map, send us a note.
Search (Google Custom Search)
One of the best parts of our website is our search engine. We use Google to power our search engine an crawl the site for new pages and content everyday. Can't find what you're looking for, run a search!
Our tool we chose for videos is Kaltura. This is one of the number one tools for managing videos. It allows us to display videos in a fast and secure way so students can view videos in Canvas, our public website and Atlas.
Faculty can create a website easily by filling out simple forms and upload files for
sharing with students. Faculty websites can also be published on a list of other faculty websites.
