Web Council returns this Thursday; same time (9-10:30 a.m.) and same place (Odegaard 220). Bill Schaefer and Fang Lin will demystify the Trumba event calendar, the Web Team’s very own Jon Swanson will give us a primer on Web development for touch screens, and ACA’s Greg Fricks will share examples of how the UW community is best using SharePoint.
The first Web Council of 2014 will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 22. 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.
For our final Web Council of 2013, special guest Duane Forrester of Bing will give us a tour into the future of search technology. We will then hear from Joel Walters about the newly launched Admissions site, plus Greg Frick from ACA will tell us all about the Microsoft SkyDrive Pro services that recently became available to UW students, staff and faculty.
Drew Collins from the College of the Environment showed off their new and improved site, guest speaker Lauren Hall-Stigerts discussed microsite branding and shared her favorite tools and tricks, plus Tracy Mehlin and David Campbell from the UW Botanic Gardens gave us a detailed look behind the scenes on their soon-to-launch interactive Arboretum map.
Web Council returns this month (yay!). Join us for a tour of the nifty new College of the Environment website, learn from our special guest Lauren Hall-Stigerts about micro-branding within a larger brand, and hear about an interactive Arboretum map from the fine folks at UW Botanic Gardens.
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.
Can you believe it’s already time for the August Web Council? Christine Tawatao will give us a sneak peek at the new Libraries site, Matt McGarrity will discuss the challenges and opportunities he’s had teaching 100,000+ students online, and Katherine Turner will give us her WebVisions Portland 2013 takeaways.
