Presentation: Twitter in Higher Ed Communications

This week I presented at the 2009 eduWeb conference in Chicago. My talk, entitled "A Bird in the Hand: Twitter as a Higher Ed Communications Tool," presented some of the reasons why institutions of higher education might want to use Twitter and provide some tips and techniques for getting such a project off the ground. The powerpoint of my presentation is…

TweetChicago: Behind the Scenes

Last month the Law School announced its TweetChicago page, which collects together an ever-increasing number of our faculty and students' 140-character-or-less musings on the micro-blogging service known as Twitter. Since then we've had several inquiries as to how we put this little experiment together, so… Continue

An Event Apart Chicago, Day 1: The Ten-Minute Wrap-up

Just got back from Day One of An Event Apart Chicago. I've got a bunch of client and personal work to do tonight, so before I settle in with a cold one and Dreamweaver, I'll try to sum up quickly what I took away from some of the sessions I attended.

Read the whole post here.

The Law School's New Recording Rig

In a previous post, I mentioned that the Law School had ordered some new equipment to improve our audio recording capability. Right now, that equipment is undergoing its first field test, recording a conference here at the Law School. I thought it might be useful to colleagues elsewhere to know what equipment we had chosen (with, I should mention, the invaluable assistance of mobile recording guru Eric Butkus).

I'll bring the discussion back to the top of the forums to see if we can find some help.

Aaron, How's it going with the aggregating the Twitter feed. It would be a great addition to the site. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. I'm thinking of adding a profile question for members to list their Twitter account to make it easier to manage.

Thanks

I'm speedy ;-) I've been trying to resist Twittering myself as long as possible, but it seems like an ill-fated battle. Thanks for all the tips!

Aaron, any progress on this? I'e had a couple of other members say this would be a great feature for this site.

Definitely. Adding an aggregate twitter feed would be great and I'll give it a prominent location on the main page. Thanks

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

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
