You Can Still Win an Apple iPod Shuffle by Taking a Survey about the IUP Website

 Permanent link

Due to a misconfigured question, a lot of eligible people were not able to take last week’s survey about the IUP website.

That means that the 2GB Apple iPod Shuffle is still up for grabs. The survey closes after sixty people take it, so if you finish the survey you'll have a 1 in 60 chance of winning.

Your answers to the survey will help us make the IUP website easier to use. It takes about twelve minutes to complete, and it is open to all IUP students.

All results are confidential.

To be eligible for the iPod Shuffle, you must:

  • Be a current IUP student

  • Not be employed by IT Services, Communications and Community Relations, or Career Development

  • Be one of the first sixty students to complete the survey

  • Complete the entire survey

  • Complete the contact information on the last screen

The survey is open now. The draw for iPod Shuffle will take place once sixty eligible students have successfully completed the survey.

Take the survey.

(Web Summits) Permanent link

The Web Team’s March Web Maintainers’ Summit has been canceled.

We’ve been working on a session focused on using video online, but putting this session together has taken longer than anticipated. We know that a lot of departments are interested in using video on their websites. We plan to offer some production tips, technical tips for getting your website online, and advice on getting your video noticed.

See you next month!

P.S. In the meantime, let your students know that they can win an iPod Shuffle by taking a survey to help improve the website.
