Powerful Content Syndication Across a Network of Higher Ed Sites

Powerful Content Syndication Across a Network of Higher Ed Sites

Many institutions of higher education struggle to manage their network of public and private sites powered by different Content Management Systems. Creating, sharing, managing, and finding content can become very cumbersome when you have multiple sites. And putting everything into one site is typically impractical, if not impossible.

Six Feet Up will demonstrate how to deliver a better experience and save time with PushHub, an open source technology to Syndicate, Curate, and Find distributed content. Learn how to syndicate content across various CMSs and intranets while maintaining workflows and per-article editorial control. University case studies will be shared.
