We're constantly working at .eduGuru to provide our colleagues at universities with the resources that they need to make educated decisions about the web technology that they use.
Cedar Rapids, Iowa (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
On Friday, December 16, Converge Consulting will be hosting a #FAC Friday After Class live chat session on the Converge web site at http://www.convergeconsulting.org/fac/ in which .eduGuru’s Michael Fienen will be releasing the findings of .eduGuru’s nationwide survey regarding content management system usage in higher education. Michael has been working in web development for more than a decade. He currently wears many hats, functioning as the Director of Web Marketing at Pittsburg State University, CTO at the interactive map firm nuCloud, and working as a consultant with organizations around the country. He is a respected speaker at conferences on subjects ranging from video, to mobile, accessibility, and content strategy, and also writes for the award winning higher ed web development blog .eduGuru.
.eduGuru’s survey of more than 500 institutions examined which schools are using what content management systems and also gathered feedback from users about the systems that are supporting the web presences of our colleges and universities. In an effort to provide resources for institutions that need a new CMS to design, redesign, or realign their university’s site, the findings will cover current trends regarding CMS usage at colleges and universities in the United States. Particular emphasis will be placed on discussing levels of customer satisfaction with specific content management systems as well as the features that specific systems offer.
#FAC Friday After Class is a live chat series that features higher education industry experts who engage audience members in discussions of tips, resources, and strategies related to smart marketing in higher education. Topics include web content strategy, social media strategy, web analytics strategy, etc. Participants can sign-up for reminders as well as watch the live sessions on the Converge web site at http://www.convergeconsulting.org/fac/.
