Membangun website untuk Universitas dengan OpenScholar

Dalam beberapa kesempatan di pekerjaan, menemani lingkungan pendidikan untuk mengembangkan website universitas, sekolah selalu menjadi tantangan. Tantangannya karena :
1. tidak semua sekolah / universitas memiliki kepentingan untuk tampil 'baik' di dunia Internet
2. tidak semua sekolah / universitas peduli dengan ranking dalam dunia internet
3. tidak semua sekolah / universitas peduli dengan update yang harus dilakukan di websitenya.

Namun yang menarik di Indonesia, penggunaan webgonometric menjadi salah satu tolak ukur website universitas di Indonesia.

Salah satu software CMS yang menarik yang bisa digunakan adalah OpenScholar. OpenScholar dibangun di atas Drupal, sehingga mudah untuk dikostumisasi dengan cepat.
