Reflecting on the HighEdWeb 2008 Conference

I recently attended the HighEdWeb 2008 Conference in Springfield, MO. All of the presentations and both workshops I attended were excellent. The presenters gave many good tips and tools to use. The following are my short summaries on some presentations:

What's The Best CMS Out There

Looking for some opinions out there on Content Management Systems. Our institution is looking to replace our current CMS since it is not user friendly and does not offer much.

One CMS I came across was Ektron: http://www.ektron.com/ - Backed by a CMS400.NET API I have found this product to be powerful and offer many tools such as Social Networking & Community Platforms and Document Management Functionality.

Any info would be appreciated...

Thanks

Yay! It's really sweet, as was the enclosed hot chocolate.
Thanks!

Best CMS option

It's time for us to move away from our current CMS, and I was wondered what is working best for others: a pre-packaged solution, or building your own with WordPress, Drupal or ...?See More
