Web Strategy Meeting 04.19.12

Web Updates

Careers section makeover completed

Highlights include:

  • More visual and interactive look and feel
  • Streamlined navigation
  • Customized story feeds (Quick note, so that the photos on the story feeds look consistent, I’m recommending a size of 238x180px for photos of News Room and MIIS Around the World stories.)

Monterey Abroad Section Updates

NPTS Landing Page

New Website Buttons

Please let Rebecca know if you need copies of the website buttons to use within your site. They come in small or large sizes:

Blogging Community: Server Migration

  • sites.miis.edu’s migration to LAMP servers at Middlebury has been completed; this should bring us better performance and stability in the future
  • New plugins such as Simple Facebook Connect and Twitter tools for your social media needs
  • 50+ new themes – coming soon
  • Please let Rebecca know if you experience any usability issues with the blogging community. The Middlebury LIS guys have been awesome about turning around any bugs and usability issues in less than a day!

Mobile Website Updates

  • Course catalog module added
  • New blog feeds added
  • Coming soon: redirecting mobile users to the site, instead of the regular MIIS website
  • If you have any ideas for mobile website content, please let Rebecca know, or leave a comment on this blog post.
