We are in the process of moving our site off of an dead ended legacy CMS to something drupal flavoured. ( Happy to talk about that if any one is in the throes of same decision making)We have been looking hard at any established resources specific to .edu that we can find.Yesterday I happened on Open Academy, and in doing research for that backed into the Panopoly flavor of drupal, upon which Open Academy is based.I am both attracted to and wary of subset distributions of any project, I have…See More

This may, or may not be a long shot, I returned to higher ed web management in January. One of the joys I have inherited is refining the UX for our student services portal. While I am a long time php abuser, I have less experience with .net based applications...are there people out there who are dealing with same? Does anyone want to trade experiences/answer occasional questions?Thanks,Ken PooleyWebmaster Southern Maine Community Collegehttp://www.SmccME.eduSee More

Solution for deluge of daily emails?

So way back in "the day" (eight or so years ago), our employee/student email inboxes were routinely deluged with 40+ individual email messages per day due to the "campus-wide" email lists being open for anyone here to send messages to.Enough people eventually decried the situation, so we came up with an email/website "publication" that was basically akin to a "daily digest email" of what were originally individual messages.This was highly successful and took a large part of the burden off of…See More
