Good examples of higher-ed webcams?

We have an aging/ailing streaming webcam that has been surprisingly popular for several years here at Ohio Wesleyan. It's a PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) user-controllable camera with a Java-based interface that can be embedded on a website.We've heard numerous anecdotes of students (especially international students) arranging to stand in view of the camera at a predetermined date/time and wave to their families watching back home and whatnot.At any rate, with this year's crazy-cold weather, our current…See More

"The social media directory for W&M although still a list of links, does offer similar sorting abilities. We first broke things down into "Official-ish" (http://social.wm.edu/index.php/sm_directory/officialish) and…"

"I agree...categorizing them by colleges/departments/etc. is definitely the way to go, since so many of these entities have multiple social media accounts. That way, all of that entity's social media links are in one place, rather than scattered…"

"Here are some I've found https://www.cmu.edu/social-media/ I like how they categorize them by colleges, departments, etc, rather than by social media network. Here's a similar idea, not quite as attractive but still pretty clear…"

Examples of good Social Media Directory pages/sites?

We're trying to get a handle on the growing-every-day number of official (and semi-official) social media presences that various entities around our campus are using. The list of Facebook pages/groups and Twitter accounts, in particular, are getting quite lengthy.Which led to me doing some investigation into what other schools are doing to consolidate this type of information into some sort of "social media directory" page/site.It was by no means a thorough search, but it seems to boil down to…See More

Events calendaring vs. room/space reservation systems...

Currently, we're using Ad Astra for room/space reservation and UNL Event Publisher for our public events calendar.While this setup works, there's still quite a bit of manual intervention to get data out of Ad Astra and into a pleasing-to-the-user presentation in UNL Event Publisher.It has been a couple years since we arrived at this solution, so I was wondering if there have been any recent developments or suggestions of alternative systems that accomplish these types of functionality in a…See More
