Content Management System (CMS)

A Content Management System (CMS) allows for the uploading, editing, and publishing of content, generally to a website. The functionality of the system can vary based on its primary use, but most allow users to collaborate on content, track usage/editing, format content, modify search and retrieval terms, etc. Content management systems are an integral software platform used primarily to manage the access and publishing of informal learning content. They also allow authors of content, subject matter experts, and content managers the ability to modify, upload or remove content, which is particularly useful for those who know Hypertext Markup Language (HTML).
