“Campus Press is the highest value piece in our website arsenal by far, and that includes social media,” said Scott Floyd, director of instructional technology at White Oak ISD.”
A sentiment also expressed by Grant Overstake, director of communications at Tabor College, as the support made it possible for him “to promote our small college as if we were a much larger institution.”
“What sets us apart from other hosting options is that we include a default group of plugins and themes that we support and maintain as well,” said Burt. “There’s no need to purchase additional plugins and theme subscriptions, or decide between which plugins to use.”
According to Burt, there are also no headaches with plugin conflicts or upgrades breaking a site, since Campus Press handles upgrades, caching, backups, user authentication, and end-user support.
Already, Campus Press is being used by the University of Denver, the Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt), the University of Oregon, San Jose University, St. Edwards’s University Austin, UMass Boston, Stanford University, Cornell University, and many other higher-ed insitutions.
