Cascade Exchange: News Site

This is the third blog in our ongoing Cascade Exchange (#CascadeXC) Series, where we’ll be highlighting a different resource every week. Check out last week’s blog on the Course Catalog.

Studies have shown that online readers attention spans aren’t very long. But that’s no reason to not tell them what’s going on. It’s a reason to keep it brief and pointed. Cascade can help.

The News Site is more than just an example. It's a free-standing site with everything you need to get started creating, categorizing, publishing, and sharing news. The site comes with a homepage, a news release page type, category page types, monthly and yearly landing pages, and an image repository. It also comes with Asset Factories for even faster content creation. Important news can be flagged using metadata, handpicked, and populated through external sources so you can customize what content gets featured right on the homepage.

Download the entire site, which is available in both Velocity and XSLT, and get started sharing all the latest and greatest information about what your student, colleagues, and communities are doing.
