Campus Web Services and the Publishing Principle of Least Effort

Wednesday, Oct 24 1:00 - 4:30

Presented by Rachel Cherry

We all know what it’s like to manage the web in higher education. You have a lot of information to publish, and keep up-to-date, with limited time and resources. If your web ecosystem is disorganized, your job becomes harder as you struggle to provide support and ensure unified and fresh messaging. Not to mention the College of Arts and Sciences website can’t be updated because their web developer left and no one knows Coldfusion.

Join me to discuss the service challenges we all face as web professionals in a university setting. Learn how to maximize communication and support with the least amount of duplicated effort.
