Carleton Administrative Services

Below is a list of some Carleton online services that pertain to various administrative tasks. These services are maintained and supported by ITS. For more information on all available ITS services, including installation guides and troubleshooting, visit the ITS Service Catalogue.

SCS Websites, Forms, Documents, and Website Administration

The SCS uses two content management systems for web content: WordPress and Drupal. The WordPress hosts the main School of Computer Science websites while the Drupal manages the SCS internal pages and documents.

WordPress Account: Main Website News Articles and Web Page Updates

The main computer science websites make use of the ITS WordPress server, the Carleton Content Management System (CCMS). The main SCS websites which are powered by the CCMS include:

If you require access to the website, the departmental administrator will have to request an account through the ITS service desk. Once you have access, you will be able to login by adding wp-login.php to the end of the URL.

Drupal Account: Accessing and Working with Internal Pages

The SCS uses an internal Drupal server to manage internal pages, such as course material uploads and course outline management. The Drupal account uses your existing @scs.carleton.ca account information. The first time you log in to Drupal using your SCS email and password your Drupal account will be created. If you notice any problems with your Drupal account, you can contact SCS tech staff.

For more information on Drupal and various internal SCS websites, see the following:

Internal Websites and Documents

The SCS maintains internal pages locked behind your SCS Drupal account. These pages are used to upload documents such as course materials, tech reports, and documents shared between staff and faculty.
