AbstractThe increased capability of web technology has enabled more services to be provided through web platforms. The growth of such services naturally accelerates further evolution of the technology, resulting in increased learning curve. Many web development frameworks were introduced to overcome such difficulties, and together with web technology, these workarounds have also evolved rapidly. Modern web frameworks, and also platforms, provide rich eco-system that provide alternative solutions to web development. Some powerful content management systems (CMS) even enable a web service to be developed without any programming. This thesis aims to find further opportunities from these modern frameworks, by redesigning a university’s web self-publishing service through a CMS. In order to reorient and reposition the service to address wider range of users, the key components of the CMS to be focused on were identified through contextual study and in-depth interviews. The redesigned service was suggested by designing and developing a CMS theme through agile development process.
