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 firstname.lastname@example.org)
Thanks in advance,
Web Strategist | UB Web Team Leader

With your work in Web tools, 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.
True, but at least I have his books! I used to spend a lot of time burying my nose in his Programmer's Reference Guide to CSS. (I still keep it within arms reach, I just don't need to look at it as often.) Eric's a good guy. He was still running the site when I started at Case in Alumni and Development.
My job now is a bit different than Eric's was. He was in ITS when he ran the site and was responsible for both the site and the server. After he left they split the responsibilities between ITS and Marketing and Communications.
The ITS group (which includes some of the people he worked with) does mostly back-end work--managing the server and running the portal--while my group does front end work focused on design and content, branding, HTML, marketing, usability, etc. Naturally we work together as well.
