Reflecting on the HighEdWeb 2008 Conference

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.

Thoughts on "part-time work from home" for a web developer?

This isn't a posting for a job (but hopefully that will be coming soon!)We are looking to hire a new web developer, and have gotten the OK from HR to offer this with the possibility of working from home a few days of the week, and in the office the other days. We're hoping to draw in some more candidates from outside of our local area. This is only the second position at our institution that is not fully on site, so we're in uncharted territory!I'm curious to know, does anyone work part-time…See More
