Manage Student Organizations' Web Pressences

Here at UR, I was recently involved in a discussion regarding how our various clubs are organized on the web and how to improve it. At the moment, it's a little bit of a mess - some clubs have purchased their own domain and web space, others use the University-provided SAMP web space and others have no website at all. On top of that, all clubs must provide some information on the University Student Life's website.I have begun to search for possible solutions to this problem, but haven't yet…See More

Successfully marketed & adopted social networking in Higher Ed

So this will be my first post in uwebd and I just wanted to say that it looks like a pretty good community and I'll probably be pointing my colleagues here sometime soon.Anyway, on to my vaguely-worded question. I was wondering if anyone could give me an example of universities (or institution, or whatever..) where a social networking solution has been successfully adopted. By this, I don't mean the university has a facebook page with 5,000 fans. I mean the university opened it's own social…See More
