Putting your news in the Beak (the student e-mail newsletter), IUP Daily (the employee e-mail newsletter), or the IUP news system in general will be the subject of the next Web Maintainers’ Summit on Wednesday, February 16, 2011, from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. in Delaney Hall, Room G5.
To access G5, enter Delaney Hall at the corner of Grant Street and Pratt Drive.
The summit isn’t limited to web maintainers. Many non-maintainers have news to promote and will find this information useful.
Topics that will be discussed are as follows:
Using the IUP News System
When you post news, where else does it go? Find out about the high-traffic pages, RSS feeds, and social media sites that are also carrying your news.
Putting News in the Beak and IUP Daily
Find out how to get your news in these publications if you’re a web maintainer, a faculty or staff member who isn’t a web maintainer, or a representative of a recognized student organization. Hint: It’s different for each.
Writing an Effective News Post
We’re a nation of skimmers. Make sure people are getting the information they need from your news post.
The Web Team will also discuss the editorial calendar for February and hand out the Golden Mouse Award to the next Web Maintainer of the Month.
Registration for the summit is not required.
