Hi Chris,

With your work in Web Development at the University of Arkansas, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.

Ok, thanks. We looking seriously at either RedDot or Percussion. What are your biggest challenges with RedDot? I heard there is a very limited support community, and some documentation is in German, and it's hard to write add-on modules for.

I don't quite understand the "black box" approach it has either - looks like it runs on a IIS server and can publish content to any web server (ie: the CMS is not needed to serve the content). And since the content is separate from the CMS the content can be integrated with other technologies, ie PHP and MySql. This is the part I don't understand.

Maybe we can have a representative come out and explain these things . . .

Thanks again

Hello, I'd also like to get on any RedDot listservs for higher education. We haven't made the final decision yet but are considering RedDot (php) very seriously.

Chris,

I just transferred to our ITS division and find myself learning RedDot. How can I be added to your listserv? Thanks.

Chris -

Could you add me to the RedDot.edu listserv? We've been using RedDot at Connecticut College for about a year and a half.
Thanks.

Thoughts on "part-time work from home" for a web developer?

This isn't a posting for a job (but hopefully that will be coming soon!)We are looking to hire a new web developer, and have gotten the OK from HR to offer this with the possibility of working from home a few days of the week, and in the office the other days. We're hoping to draw in some more candidates from outside of our local area. This is only the second position at our institution that is not fully on site, so we're in uncharted territory!I'm curious to know, does anyone work part-time…See More
