More and more higher ed Web teams use blogs to keep stakeholders or constituents updated about their work and share interesting information about the Web.
Lately, I’ve come across a few good examples.
No reason to keep them to myself, so here they are (no ranks, no favorites — just an unordered list)
UC Davis Web CMS Initiative:
Launched in June 2006 by Elliot Lopez, this blog is part of a special website dedicated to the selection and implementation of a content management system at this institution.
Virginia Tech’s Web Development Blog:
Started earlier this month by Mike Dame, this blog is meant as a 2-way communication channels between this institution’s web team and the campus community, a “lifeline to Web Communications, offering a chance not only to keep up-to-date, but also to ask questions and offer comments along the way.”
UB Web Services Blog:
Although not updated as often as it could, this blog was launched a year ago and allows the Office of the Provost Web Team at the University at Buffalo to share useful information with its constituents.
University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada) Web Development Blog:
Maintained by Jesse Rodgers, UW Web Communication Manager, is also a good example on how blogs can be used to share important and useful information in an informal and personal way.
Do you know other blogs maintained by higher ed Web teams on their institution’s servers and domains (I don’t mean a personal blog)? Please do share their web addresses by posting a comment!
I did omit a very good one, just to see if you’re not asleep. Which one is it?
