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.
Web Council returns to Odegaard 220 this month. Dane Odekirk will give us a sneak peek into the new UW WordPress “super theme,” Harry Hayward will update us on finding a closed captioning preferred vendor for the UW, plus Carter Henderson and Brian Wagner from Athletics will show us the new gohuskies.com.
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.
Web Council is June 20th in Allen Library (not the usual location). We’re excited to feature a panel discussion about mobile Web this month. Also on the lineup: Gregory Koester will answer your questions about Trumba, Terry Thompson and Dan Comden will demo a screen reader, and the UW Drupal Group will share highlights from DrupalCon Portland 2013.
Assistant Attorney General Clark Shores speaks about who owns the copyright of an authored work, and discusses fair use as applied to the Perfect 10 vs Amazon lawsuit. Also, Jason Civjan from the ACA UX team walks us through the process his team uses to improve UW websites.
Web Council is May 16th at the usual time and place. Get free legal advice from Clark Shore–specifically about Intellectual Property and fair use. We will also have Jason Civjan from the ACA UX team share his valuable insight about Information Architecture and how to avoid common pitfalls during site redesigns.
Just in time for the afternoon slump, here’s our Tegrity recording from today’s Web Council. We learn from Ian Lurie on how to increase search engine ranking by making our content “weird, useful, and significant.” Then we hear from Gina Hills and Terry Thompson about how to use SiteImprove to improve web site accessibility.
We’re very excited about this week’s Web Council lineup. We’ll have special guest Ian Lurie teach us practical ways to increase our search visibility (go SEO!), plus we’ll learn about improving site accessibility using SiteImprove.
Don’t you just love Web Council? We sure do. So much so, we’re recording and sharing the meetings for your viewing pleasure.
Don’t miss the March 21st Web Council. We’ll hear about how to use Tegrity to create web content, about how News & Information sharply increased their traffic, and how records retention might affect you and your web content.
