Welcome back, web maintainers! We hope you all enjoyed the break. As you start another busy semester, there are some things that you might find helpful to know. Here’s a quick update on what happened last semester and what’s coming up.
Please take a moment to look at the list of Web Maintainers for your office. If there’s anyone who needs to be removed or added, please fill out on ihelp ticket and let us know.
(If you aren’t or are no longer a web maintainer, let us know that, too.)
Here’s a partial list of the websites we created, refreshed, or relaunched last fall:
It was a busy fall for the Web Team. We handled 768 ihelp tickets and e-mail requests and approved 10,495 pieces of content (that’s about 125 each weekday). We’ve also been busy improving the site in other ways.
Whether you just want a refresher or if you’re new to Ektron, our web training sessions are scheduled every month. Registration is required.
Think you’re simply “making web pages”? Not so! You're giving people IUP
communications experiences. Are they happy experiences? Do they provide
what people want and need and make your department and IUP shine? Learn
some tips from communications strategist Deb Klenotic to make your
content short, sweet, and strategic.
Get introduced to Ektron (the content management system), and learn the basics of how to use it to maintain your site, from updating pages to creating a news post or calendar event.
A follow up to the New Basics, this is intended for web maintainers who have already completed that workshop (or who already have equivalent skills).
Remember, when you need website assistance, send your information to the Web Team via ihelp.
Look for some new academic department page designs and content this spring, when the Strategic Website Assistance Project starts rolling out.
