The Online Catalog, Exclusively Digital at Last

A session at HighEdWeb 2012

  • Christopher Semetis
  • John Roleke

Tuesday 9th October, 2012

4:00pm to 5:30pm (CST)

It's been sitting there year after year on your shelf, gathering dust and taunting you with its 3-D shape. Why isn't your institution's course catalog 100 percent online ? After all, you have the resources: a fine content management system, a lot of (easy) content and plenty of people familiar with the project, plus the incentive to save money on printing. What could possibly go wrong? You'll find the stress points are more about the process than about the technology. This is a non-technical presentation on the project management of bringing the course catalog exclusively online. How do you get buy-in from leadership, faculty and staff? What's the best way to overcome fears and make sure the jobs gets done? Can you unlock content from other databases? How do you build accountability into the process? What about measuring effectiveness? And, once it's all digital, what's the future of the course catalog? Learn from our cross-departmental team's experience at New York Institute of Technology.
