The Web Team, with the assistance of videographer Emily Smith, showed web maintainers how to create videos, how to embed them on your website, and how to promote them online.
This month’s Web Maintainer of the Month award was presented to Jennifer Kostryk for her work on the Human Resources website. Thanks to Jen’s efforts, the website is a reliable and up-to-date resource for employees. The Human Resources site shows the result of dedication to keeping organized, paying attention to content, and keeping the needs of site visitors as a priority.
Also on the agenda was an overview of how academic departments can promote their Commencement ceremonies on their website.
The Web Maintainers’ Summit took place on April 20, 2011. One more summit is planned for this year.
All the information from Wednesday’s summit has been included in a new set of web how-to documents. This is also where web maintainers can download a copy of the Video Content Template.
The presentation slides from the summit are available for download in PDF format:
The YouTube smart form demonstrated during the summit is available on the staging server, but is not yet available in every folder. The Web Team is working on making this smart form available everywhere.
In the meantime, if you need to embed a YouTube video but don’t have the smart form available yet, just e-mail the Web Team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can activate it for you.
