Matt Herzberger - Director of Web Communications Florida International University posed a question to the listserv Higher Education Cascade User Group List <firstname.lastname@example.org> regarding "products" within Cascade.
This was my reply to the listserv with JMU's list of 'products'. If you haven't signed up for this listserv, I highly recommend signing up here.
PRIMARY CONTENT TYPES:
Events Listing:http://www.jmu.edu/events/ We have this format auto generated and republished daily to reflect the daily events from this month then indexing forward for next months in the year. This includes several related formats for a mini calendar widget like this: http://www.jmu.edu/admissions/visit/index.shtml. JMU employs a self-archiving event and news folder structure events/2012/08/17-webinar.shtml.
Stories:http://www.jmu.edu/stories/ Featured stories are a content type that have 'evergreen' type of content which is always meaningful(rather that news which is more publish date related). These feature stories have richer depth to them and this indexing is one listing. They also have similar related content on the right side on the individual pages like news and events.
SECONDARY CONTENT TYPES:
Profiles:http://www.jmu.edu/bethechange/people.shtml This wall of faces is generated by a block that pulls standardized thumbnails associated from a profile type, then the individual profile listings are also generated by the individual profile blocks.
