MIS website future direction
For those of you interested in web sites, web use, traffic analytics, and future plans for mis.ucd.ie I will host a brief presentation and discussion on our current web presence and future direction tomorrow, Thursday 19 at 10am in Q203.
We propose that on-going use of mis.ucd.ie will focus on news and event information.
Individual homepages will default to your own UCD RMS profile with updated publications etc.
The research groups and subject area will default to the equivalent UCD main page i.e.
All existing site urls and files to remain visible and intact, indeed you will continue to be able to host files as needed on mis.ucd.ie where other file hosting options are infeasible.
In effect we will delegate mis.ucd.ie to be a trusted linking site to www.ucd.ie to boost our search engine relevance and for communications that are broadly relevant to MIS but fall outside the remit of the main UCD umbrella.
The UCD micro sites (www.ucd.ie/*) will become more important as landing pages and will therefore need active maintenance.
Information on UCD's CMS and training for designated web master / content managers is available at
