August www-sig - Webmaster Basics Working Meeting

08/12/2010 - 1:00pm
08/12/2010 - 2:30pm

In lieu of a presentation, the August www-sig meeting will be a working meeting. Since February 2010, several www-sig participants have been working on and off on a "Webmaster Basics" curriculum. In its current form, this curriculum is just a series of web pages. We plan to host it on the IT Commons Knowledge Base wiki, although we have not put our content up there yet. At the August 12 meeting, the group will take an informal look at some early drafts of Webmaster Basics content.

Subject: Collaboration suite handouts from last week


Thanks so much for the discussion about collaboration tools last week. I really enjoyed hearing from all of you and getting your feedback on the future collaboration environment for the university. I am attaching the slide deck that we went over and the Cloud Computing Privacy and Data Security Task Force Report. As always, please feel free to send any suggestion or questions. We will also be starting a Yammer discussion group so that we can extend the discussion.
