"well I don't know how it would integrate into a CMS but you could probably develop a web app that manipulated an XML file through a form. It my write to a mysql db and then have scripts generate the file from the db."

Can't believe I didn't come across you guys sooner!Anyway, I was wondering if anyone was aware of any software, freeware or open source flash that might help me to create a timeline of the University's history. I just don't have the time or staff to create one from scratch, and the resources to outsource the work…See More

Questioning the Value of College Holiday Videos

I'm wondering what people think is the value of doing a holiday video for a college/university. What is the goal? Do schools make them simply because others are doing it? Who is the target audience - is it to maintain engagement with alums or to attract prospectives and their families? When do schools start planning them - (in September/October?)
