Additional Website Training Walk-In Sessions

November 14th, 2011 by Lynda S. LaRoche

From Jon Coffin, Director of Strategic Communications:

Dear website authors, content managers, and coordinators,

We are now approximately a month away from the scheduled “launch date” for the new DePauw website.

Thank you to many of you who have been updating your content and preparing your pages for the launch.  Many of your pages are coming together quite nicely. Thanks, also, to those who have joined for our ongoing walk-in sessions for the new BigTree content management system. I hope they have been helpful.

To provide continued support in the coming weeks, we have added three additional walk-in sessions. With these new sessions, a total of four sessions remain:
  • 11/16 – 1-5 PM (Roy O Basement Lab)
  • 11/30 – 1-5 PM (Roy O Basement Lab)
  • 12/2 – 8:30-Noon (Roy O Basement Lab)
  • 12/7 – 1-5 PM (Roy O Basement Lab)
As with the originally scheduled sessions, members of the Communications/Webteam/FITS team will be available to assist you with site-specific questions about your pages. Please sign up for one of the above sessions using this form. Signing up in advance will help us be best prepared to answer your questions.

Additionally, as you work on your site, please reference this overview of the site’s styles, (which we have added to the “Overview” landing page within BigTree). You may find it helpful as a model for using the heading, paragraph, table stylings within the new site structure.

Finally, please remember that our scheduled launch date for the new site is December 15th. At that point, only content that has been moved into BigTree will be available at www.depauw.edu. We would strongly encourage you to have all of your content moved into the new system by the first week of December so the final week before launch can be spent confirming, and re-confirming, that all content is prepared and displaying properly for the official launch date.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact us at webteam@depauw.edu with additional questions.

Best,
Jon
