“Of CMS, Sleepless Nights, Nightingales & Avatars”

Before anybody dreamed up the term “Web-too-point Oh,” when having a fax machine of my own and three buttons on my desk phone made me a state-of-the-science communications executive, I carried myself with such great confidence and a kind of light-footed romantic sense of the world that all problems, great and small, were manageable. I slept every night straight through, certain that the next day’s challenges would be easily conquered.



Yes, my days as an Olympic-class sleeper (able to… Continue

Brand spankin' new

Hello all UwebD's out there.



I'm a new member here, though I've been utilizing the site for quite some time. I have been working in admissions for a year now, and only responsible for a small portion of our school's website. However, I am thinker and always looking for what is out there and what is great to take to the next level.



I'll invite you to check out www.warnerpacific.edu to see how dated and un-impressive our website is… Continue

Hello My Old Friend - Polls Are BACK - did they ever go away?

Recently Customer Relations and Communication (a department in OIT) was tasked to develop a way for enrolled students to answer a poll question about technology. The parameters of the poll were/are that only enrolled students could submit, that we needed at least 500 votes in 30 days, we couldn't use commercially available (free or otherwise) polling tools, and here is the crazy part we had no incentives to get students to participate (short of me handing them 5 bucks each from my own million… Continue

Best Admission Uses of Twitter

"For 2010, it is safe to expect that Twitter will not see a diminished roll in university marketing and admissions strategy plans. However, it’s hard to avoid that some people will be coming to the web guys to have them set up their admissions office with Twitter (or will do it themselves), but then will do very little with it, feeling like they ‘just need to have it to be current.’ Should that happen to you, I wanted to share some of the best uses of Twitter that universities are doing… Continue

Admitted Students Social Networking Survey Results

I recently put out a call for help on Twitter (#heweb09) to get some data on Admitted Students Social Networking sites. I didn't get a huge response but I got enough to help me move forward. As promised, I said I'd post the info on this site. THANK YOU to all who helped!



I'll leave the poll open and if I get any more responses, I'll post an update in a few weeks.… Continue

First Week on the job..

As I begin the college lifestyle again, I will be actually in the offices of the school and not in the classrooms. I have started my new job here at NCTC as the Webmaster. I prefer a different name as I am no master of the web at all. I prefer the title "the new web-guy" or just "web-guy". I have the responsiblity of a total redesign of the school's website. This will be a major undertaking. So stay tuned.......

WordPress as Course Catalog

We've just launched our newest feature - The 2009-2010 Catalog - Department of Graduate and Professional Studies. It's all built in WordPress. Check it out: http://content.nichols.edu/course_catalogs/gps/

The new site uses a plugin to manage the sidebar navigations - Page Lists Plus - see that here: http://www.technokinetics.com/plugins/page-lists-plus/. Other than that, it's a standard WordPress install with custom built theme.

An Event Apart, Boston - anyone else go?

Last week I attended An Event Apart, Boston (http://aneventapart.com/). It was excellent.

My First Post EVER

I am indeed not from another planet but this is indeed my first post. Don't get me wrong I have read my share of blogs, but I guess I never thought I had anything important to say. I'm quite sure I still don't but I'll never know if I don't try.
