This guide provides instructions and information about Stanford Web Services Jumpstart platform, based on Drupal 7.
We've released our new Stanford Sites on Drupal 8 (D8) platform — the new framework for Stanford Sites in 2020 and beyond. Check out our new User Guide to help you set up your website on the D8 platform.
The Stanford Course feature is used to display courses from the current academic year on your website from Explore Courses.
The Stanford Course feature includes course section information and optional connection to the instructor's profile page. All course information should be updated in Explore Courses.
Visit this page to set up your course importer.
Any change to a course needs to be done at http://explorecourses.stanford.edu.
The "Current Courses" page will begin displaying courses for the upcoming quarter two weeks prior to the start of the quarter.
