Yesterday, I attended the NERCOMP WordPress University SIG, a showcase of what some folks are doing with WordPress.
First session: Jay Colier, Web Communications Manager, Bates College
Described reworking Bates Collegeâ€™s web presence to identify and streamline paths that guide people through different stages of connection to the institution. Traditionally, each stage (e.g., applicant, student, alumnus, etc.) was a separate silo. Lots of good, high-level analysis. WordPress allowed Jay to implement a redesigned site with minimal resources, but a robust result. Easy content development for contributing departments.
