What is Ensemble

Ensemble is the common name for the content management system used to host websites for Virginia Tech internet domains.

Currently, Ensemble uses Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) as its back-end infrastructure and supports more than 800 websites. This is a locally installed and heavily modified version of AEM that is unique to Virginia Tech.

The primary audiences for sites hosted in Ensemble are prospective students, research partners, and prospective donors to the university.

Ensemble does have the capability to interact with external data sources through web forms, iframes, and JSON/XML data via asynchronous JavaScript.

How is information about Ensemble arranged

The content of this website is arranged by user role agnostic information–getting started, faq, support, tools–and user role specific information for the three roles–author, publisher, webadmin.

Utility classes

Utility classes enable functionality within the Ensemble CMS. See what formatting and utility features are available.

Theme widgets

Widgets are combinations of components, classes, and content that yield a specific look within the One theme. They aren't components, yet.
