Shared Content

Save Time, Maintain Consistency​​

Shared Content is material that’s used by multiple sites across Mason’s digital ecosystem. It provides a centralized home for such things as academic program descriptions, faculty profiles, and news stories that appear on a variety of university websites.​

Having shared content means multiple people don’t have to perform the same task, or someone has to make the same update in several places. If something must be altered or updated, the change is made in one place, then flows across all sites on which the material appears.

Using shared content:

  • Maintains editorial consistency across all Mason sites.
  • Saves time and labor by making changes/updates in one place for multiple sites.
  • Minimizes silos by making content universally available and easy to share across the university’s digital ecosystem.

It also enables us to speak with one voice, following Mason’s content strategybranding, and style guidelines.

Items that go into shared content include:

  • Academic Programs
  • News Stories
  • Faculty Profiles
  • Dissertations
  • GrantsPublications
  • Student/Alumni Profiles

You'll find shared content material:

Being able to share faculty profiles comes in particularly handy when faculty members teach classes in more than one college or school. Using Shared Content means they only have to maintain their biographical information in one place
