Since you are in the CMS group, I was hoping you could advise me. UB is setting up a university-wide content management system and we are exploring what best practices other universities are doing. In particular, we are trying to identify universities that are:

* Using a CMS enterprise wide, or with several departments

* Have governance or policies in place

* Have a form of centralized staffing

* And hopefully are encouraging best practices in content and user experience.

If you can take the brief survey at https://vovici.com/wsb.dll/s/8727g3fd23 (no longer than 2-5 minutes) it would help us gather preliminary information that will assist us in our initial phase of research. If you know of someone in your organization better suited to fill this out, please feel free to pass this along.

We are looking for initial responses by Thursday, October 15th.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or my assistant Kyriakos Zannikos (716-645-4652 or zannikos@buffalo.edu)

Thanks in advance,

Eric,

I replied to this thread on the uweb site but thought I would comment again here. My flight to eduWeb gets in to PHL on Sunday a little earlier than yours. I would be extremely grateful if I could catch a ride with you from the airport since you will have a car. I'll be happy to contribute to gas or at least treat you to beverages (adult or otherwise) once we get to AC. Thank you!

Hi Eric,

How are you? It's Val from Innovative Educators. How's the Iowa gig? Wondering if you have any suggestions or if you would be interested in presenting at our conference this summer. We're looking for someone to discuss the future of online student services with regards to retention. We want a great speaker who can inspire people and give people a realistic picture as to where things are headed. Thoughts? Hope all is well, Val

Whats up? When can you view a demo of the New UI? It rocks.

Everyone ok?

Hey Eric...how are you? like my new biz photo? had a great time getting all made up for it ... have some news coming soon for eduWeb; stay tuned ... by the way, which email address should I use for you?

Hi Eric :-) Thanks for the comment. University of Iowa Foundation huh? Sounds like we could trade notes some time :-)

New UI is done as of yesterday and working on clean up of interface. Hosted solution setup with pricing ranging from $100 per month up to 15,000, depending on choices.

I am really digging my son! He is a lot of fun.

How are you?

Hi Eric. Refresh my memory ... your name sounds familiar, and I'm trying to remember if I met you at a conference. You didn't give us the benefit of identifying you by your pix!

Any ideas on how to have this site hit critical mass and make it stick? I'm convinced that a social network for higher ed web professional is a good idea.

HI Eric -

Welcome to Ning! Have you ever used Ning before? Let me know what you think of this site.

I hope you have a great holiday season.

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."

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
