Hi George,

Thank you for joining the WebTrends group.

I am interested in exchanging some analytics data with other universities for comparison, like visits to home page content and news stories.

UAlbany is a public university with about 18,000 students, also using WebTrends software.

Will you please let me know if you would be interested in exchanging this type of data. It will only be used internally. Thank you so much.

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,

Hi George,

With your interest in Education Technology and web content, 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.

University news sites - best practices - best sites!

Hi all! I am hoping soon to get our University's news site into our new Drupal CMS.  My team wants to bring several news sources into one integrated site.  This includes news, alumnae news, athletic news, the University's magazine SCAN, and our social media channels (probably through the Rebel Mouse app).  Boston University and Mizzou are two that do this really well but I'd appreciate hearing about others.  Please share!See More
