Buzzr Education CMS

The Buzzr Education Content Management System (CMS) Edition is a turn-key web-based multi-site content management system, hosting and support solution to create and administer websites and responsive mobile sites especially for secondary schools, colleges and universities. For the college market, Buzzr has partnered with mStoner, the world’s leading digital solution provider strategy for higher education. mStoner offers expert strategy, design and content marketing, leveraging the Buzzr Education Edition. Clients have included Palo Alto University, Paul Smith’s College, and Utah State University.

The Buzzr Education Edition, built as a special usability layer on top of open source Drupal, is ideal for schools that want a dynamic, polished internet presence but with extreme ease of use for daily administrators. More than 100,000 websites use open source Drupal software created by Buzzr.

Each implementation of the platform is specifically customized for your school’s needs, including a graceful design created by our or the mStoner professional services staff. We also have many Quickstar templates available for our multi-site edition. Since it’s built on the easy-to-use, drag & drop Buzzr platform, the Buzzr Education CMS Edition costs only a fraction of the price of a Drupal website built from scratch or of “locked in” proprietary solutions.

Our multi-site control dashboard allows you to control anywhere from one site to thousands, all on the same codebase and with a single system of user profiles and sign ons.
