January 2008 update
Posted on January 1, 2008
The fall just past was a busy time, with lots of web work going on behind the scenes. Many new and revised department sites made their appearances, including new sites for SSSR and Recreation, and greatly-improved navigation for the Human Resources site. Implementation of new content management tools now makes it possible to create an archive for college news and to offer Wheaton press releases as an RSS (news) feed.
Out of public view a team from LIS and the Web group has been building the infrastructure for insideWheaton, the college's new web community, now in final testing. The finance staff has built extensive private sites for Board of Trustees committees; the sites promise improved services and better communication for these important groups while saving staff time. And, our staging server has been replaced, adding speed and reliability.
Major improvements to the web editing environment are about to be released for use by departments. And, most visibly, we have many new banners on the home page and other major pages. You can view images from the banners in the banner gallery.
