What is website development?
DGIT offers turnkey website development services to UCLA and the UCLA-affiliated community.
We help you create a polished online presence to enrich your work. We provide the tools you need to keep your site current, including access to and training on a flexible, secure content management system you can use to easily update your website, even if you have no web experience or knowledge.
Our collaborative process starts with your vision and ends with an attractive, functional website designed to your specifications.
How does website development benefit my work?
Our experts follow a development process, so you can get a professional website you love without taking too much time away from your work. Additionally, our websites give you a dynamic platform for telling the story of your work. You design the website to your specifications, so you can control how people perceive your work, contact you, and more.
