DotNetNuke is the foundation for hundreds of thousands of websites around the world. Many of these websites are used by institutions of higher learning to enable students, teachers, administrators and alumni to communicate and collaborate. Please join me for our next Showcase Webinar on February 23rd, at 10 AM PST. You will hear “live” from two University Web Developers how they used DotNetNuke to build powerful and highly collaborative web sites. Can’t make it? Registeranyway to receive a recording of the event.

 

Joining me will be Robin Parker from the Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University and Walt Brannon from the University of New Orleans (Member of Louisiana State University System) We will also be joined by Cuong Dang, Social Media Technology Manager at r2Integrated and DotNetNuke Core Team member.

 

REGISTER: http://bit.ly/iiF6Xk

You will learn:     

  • To build, deploy and manage a University or College web site with limited resources
  • How to integrate social networking features into your site.
  • How university web site developers implement content workflows to ensure content is accurate and approved before being published
  • To provide secure access to sensitive areas of your web site and ensure only authorized content contributors are able to change key site content
  • To deploy a web site for hundreds of non-technical content contributors
  • How two developers used third party application modules to control development costs while extending the functionality of their site
  • How University web manages leveraged 3rd party DotNetNuke design and development services to rapidly deploy their sites.

Panelists:

Robin Parker, Web and Database Programming Manager, Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management, Cornell University (www.johnson.cornell.edu)

Robin successfully deployed a rebranded CMS-based web site that created a larger applicant pool, attracted top faculty and improved employment prospects for graduates of the Johnson School. Robin also recently launched a new Alumni Portal which uses ActiveSocial modules to enable over 13,000 alumni to communicate and network.

Walt Brannon, Manager Messaging and Media Systems, University of New Orleans (uno.edu.com)

Walt recently released a suite of new web properties for the University of New Orleans (one of LSU’s campuses) in record time. Walt created multiple web portals with unique URLs for the colleges (i.e. College of Science, College of Liberal Arts) and deployed document sharing and collaboration across colleges and departments.

Cuong Dang, Social Media Technology Manager, r2integrated

Cuong leads the marketing effort for the open source technology platform, DotNetNuke (DNN), and decision making in front-end engineering implement

You can do a couple of pages on Crazy Egg for free to try it out. We have used it a bit.

Anyone have a good idea for free or low cost tools to produce good heat maps? I have tested ClickHeat - http://i-can-haz-learning.net/clickheat/index.php [user/pass: guest/guest] and while it seems like it will have potential, it is really not as clean as I should like... and Click Density code really slowed our test page down when I ran the 30 day / 5000 click demo on it...
Anything good out there?

Website Translation Services

I've been tasked with getting some of our website translated into Spanish and Chinese. We had some pages translated into Spanish several years ago, but since multi-lingual was not part of our workflow, the content on those pages quickly became out-of-date and were just recently removed from the site.Do any of you have pages translated to other languages? Do you use a 3rd-party service to do it, or someone on campus with those skills? Or an automated service like Google translate?For those of…See More

"Thanks for responding, Erik! I agree and like your point about it being a different kind of piece without a call to action. Those projects have their place, but is sometimes hard to justify carving out the time for them."

Erik Hagen replied to Michelle L. Monti's discussion Questioning the Value of College Holiday Videos
"We did one in 2012 and 2013, but not 2014. We initially got caught up in the buzz because everyone was doing them, and it seemed like a fun idea. But this last cycle we were so busy with other projects we couldn't justify carving out the time.…"

Dynamically adding text to a PDF

We're looking for a service or tool that will let employees create their own business card and have a press-ready PDF sent to our print shop. Ideally the employee would type in their info into a form, and that text would be dropped into a predefined PDF template. I know this falls under the "web to print" industry, but I haven't found any workable services yet. Thanks!See More
