Adobe Dreamweaver is an application used to create and edit Web pages - also known as a Web editor. Faculty and staff can use the software in the Faculty/Staff Resource Center (ARC 3012), while students can use the software in many of the student labs around campus.

Many faculty and staff can use the Web Content Management (WCM) system to develop and edit webpages using template-based pages. This is an easier system to use than Dreamweaver and requires no prior knowledge of HTML.

Dreamweaver is a more advanced Web editor which gives you more control over the content and style of your webpages.

If you need Dreamweaver installed on your work computer, please contact your technology consultant who supports your department.
