Institutional Site Launch Postponed

I hope everyone is enjoying their summers! Just wanted to post an update on the Phase I (institutional site) launch.

The new website has fallen behind due to the changes in IT. Our servers are being configured now and dotCMS won’t be able to complete the implementation until they have access to the servers. We also had to postpone the dotCMS “train the trainer” sessions. The “train the trainer” Content Manager course is currently scheduled for July 19-20. The primary audience for this course is ETS (Educational Technology Services, aka our Help Desk staff and other IT support staff) so that they can deliver subsequent training to the campus. There will also be a Content Architect course July 21-22 (this covers creating templates, widgets and the like) intended for people who will be dotCMS administrators.

We’re hoping to launch the institutional site August 1, with all other sites migrating after that. ETS will likely hold the first dotCMS training for the campus sometime in August and continue regularly through the fall semester.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled activities.
