Converting to the web2010 format
We won't lie. Conversion isn't super-easy or instantaneous. Anything worthwhile rarely is, right?
But please, don't worry. The Web Team will be at your side walking you through the process step-by-step. And we'll be there for you once your fancy new site is up and running, too.
New look. New life.
Together, we'll not only give your site an aesthetic makeover, we'll build your site strategically, making it more effective, organized and user-friendly.
To begin the conversion process, send an email that includes the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
How do I get my site onto web2010?
A: The goals of web2010 go far beyond cosmetic enhancement. We're talking complete overhaul -- meaningful improvements. When moving your site, you'll be well supported, and will be expected to actively participate. Site conversion is a six-week process that begins when you send an email that includes the following information to email@example.com:
You'll then be contacted by the web team for scheduling and logistics.
What does the conversion process involve?
A: The conversion process is analogous to building a house. You'll work as a project manager alongside a team of professional web architects, contractors and interior designers. With your co-direction, they'll take care of the blueprints, bricks and mortar. They'll even lay out the welcome mat.
Once it's built and they hand over the keys, the place is yours. You'll be responsible for upkeep. If you have a leaky pipe, they'll send the plumbers over, straightaway. If you'd like your space feng shuied, they'll show you how to achieve aesthetic functionality. But they won't make your bed or sweep the floors.
For more information on site conversion, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who participates in the conversion process?
A: Not surprisingly, we've found building successful websites requires a team effort.
-A designated website editor: The web editor will be trained on how to use WSU's web content management system. Under direction of the department head, the web editor will be responsible for carrying out changes to and maintenance of the department's website.
-A cadre of web team members: A web consultant from the Marketing and Communications department will guide and assist you throughout the conversion process and beyond. You'll also be working with a team of IT professionals who will build your site, answer your questions, and fix any tech issues you may encounter.
