WEBMASTERS COMMITTEE MEETING MINUTES
Tuesday, February 13, 2001
Adams Room, Physiology Building
Ms. Pridgen called the meeting to order at 9:00 a.m. The presentation scheduled for this meeting will be presented at a later time.
Members Present: J. Bethel, J. Chandler, M. Fettman, T. Harmon, S. Hilligoss, J. Lenz, C. Moth, M. Pridgen, J. Riegel, C. Schmer, and L. Tarnoff
Microbiology pages have been certified. It was suggested that we might consider registering in Bobby's Database. The difficulty with being registered would be recertifying each time we made changes to the pages.
New Photo for the College's Main Page
The brochure for the CVMBS Open House in April of 2001 features a number of photographs that would be suitable for the College Homepage. Ms. Pridgen will check with the College photographers to see if they can be used.
Ms. Lenz showed the Argus Institute website and encouraged everyone to take a look and provide feedback to the Webmaster. The Argus Institute would like to be linked to from the College's home page. Committee members discussed location but made no decisions.
New Website Design
Discussion moved to potential design features for the College's website. It has been agreed that it is time to consider a new design. This change would work well with the reorganization effort. Committee members talked about considering a new college logo--perhaps having a graphic design class work on it or see whether Instructional Technology would provide some support. Discussion also centered on ways to unclutter the home page without leaving it devoid of information. Possible design features could be drop down menus or flyouts.
At the next meeting discussion will begin on the redesign, particularly timelines, etc. and on how we can transition our pages to reflect the reorganization process even before the redesign is finished, if necessary.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:45 a.m. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 13, 2001 at 9:00 a.m. in the Adams Room, Physiology Building.
