"We just posted our new web policy that says that they have to go through my office before they can hire an external contractor. They are free to do it we just want to ensure branding, web standards and compliance. So no they dont have to use our…"
"Thanks for the feedback, Matt. I do like the subcontracting idea...hadn't thought about that. In all honesty, we don't get these types of requests often (a couple a year maybe). But my fear is that if we start saying we offer this service…"

I need some feedback regarding offering design services for departments internally.I work for a smaller school with a web staff of only two people (including myself). Up to this point, we've allowed departments to hire external firms to create custom designs for their department, but we do not offer design services for departments internally. We are now considering offering design services internally, but are thinking that if we did so, we would want to charge departments for those designs. One…See More

"Has anyone had Google actually come to their campus yet in order to gather data for indoor maps? They are coming to our campus tomorrow, and I just wanted to see if anyone was willing to share that experience. If not, I'll let you know…"
"Do any of you know if the indoor maps are only available on Android devices, or are they available via the web too? The website seems to communicate that you can only utilize them on Android devices."
"I was recently contacted by Google as well and am hoping to be able to move forward with them as well, but I'm currently in the process of running that by administration. Sounds like the service could be really useful.
"I agree with you, Erik. Guidelines and best practices are important. I would say also communicate these best practices to students as well, if they contribute to the social media messages of the school. If they are aware of norms and expected…"

After having dabbled in social media for the past couple of years, our institution has decided to really start utilizing social media to a fuller extent. Until this point, our web team has been the main contributor to our social media efforts. However, our admissions office is the one who has really taken the lead on this new effort, which is great, but the problem that we're having right now is that no one really "owns" the management of our social media strategy as a whole.So my question…See More

I know you've been tasked with finding a software solution, though I'm wondering if you may need an interim step first: Does your institution have checklists covering all of the steps needed in on-boarding, relocating, and…"
I've been tasked with finding a software tool that helps manage the onboarding and exit process of new and departing faculty. Ultimately i would like this software to management faculty office interms of when resources can be removed from a particular office and when a new faculty member can be moved in with the necessary resources.
