Last week myself, Michael Fienen and Karlyn Morissette had the privilege of speaking at the HighEdWeb 2009 Conference. I can’t explain how great it was to see so many higher education web professionals, I feel humbled being around so many awesome people doing great things.
In all the discussions I realized how similar but yet very different all the web offices are. They range from large and centralized to small 1-2 person teams. I summed it up in this tweet:
“Major theme from #heweb09: There are a lot of great people underfunded, understaffed and underappreciated doing some great stuff!“
I wanted to try and get an understanding of the landscape of higher education web environments to see what works, what doesn’t and how we can all improve. I created a survey for anyone who’s primary job is working on any part of an institution’s Web site. It should not take more than 5 minutes to complete.
The survey will be open until October 25th so spread the word to any higher ed web professionals. The more responses the better the results and analysis.
Survey closed. Stay tuned for results.
