Web Maintainers’ Summit on the Ektron Upgrade

July 10, 2013
11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.

Beard Auditorium, Stouffer Hall

An overview of the changes web maintainers will see when the upgrade to Ektron 8.7 is complete as well as a walkthrough showing how to complete common tasks.

Starting July 15, web maintainers will be seeing some big changes to the look and feel of the Ektron workarea. As announced in June, the Web Team will hold a one-hour web maintainers’ summit on the coming changes.

This summit takes place at 11:00 a.m. in Beard Auditorium, Stouffer Hall. It will provide an overview of the changes web maintainers will see when the upgrade is complete as well as a walkthrough showing how to complete common tasks.

We encourage all web maintainers to attend. However, we know that not everyone will be able to, so we will provide several other avenues to find out about the coming changes:

  • Slides for the presentation will be available on the Web Team site on July 11.
  • The How To section of the Web Team site is being updated to cover the new version.
  • Once the upgrade is complete, additional trainings will be offered covering what web maintainers need to know about the new system.

The upgrade itself will take place on Saturday, July 13. In preparation, all editing of content on our staging server will cease at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, July 12. Content will reopen for editing on Monday, July 15 once the upgrade is complete. Please make your web editing plans accordingly.
