Learn about an interactive landscape survey designed to help steward Seattle campus development over the next 20 years, get an update from Harry Hayward on the UW-preferred closed captioning vendor, and bring your most burning questions about HTML5 and jQuery for Dane Odekirk’s keynote presentation.

To all 42 Web Council attendees who took the time to fill out our yearly Web Council survey: Thank you! And now that we’re firmly rooted in 2014, I thought it would be a good time to share the final survey results—all repackage into nifty charts and graphs.

August Web Council recap

Globe in Suzzallo Library

Alas, we have no Tegrity recording this month. I think the computer in Odegaard 220 is shy, so I’ve enrolled it in Matt McGarrity’s Public Speaking MOOC. Let’s hope that will do the trick in time for our September Web Council. In the meantime, here is your recap and slide deck round up.

The Allen Library Auditorium is not equipped for Tegrity recordings, so we unfortunately have no recording of today’s Web Council. Instead, I present to you this recap of our stellar presentations.
