Mark Your Calendar: Creating and Managing an Aggregated University Events Website

Presented by Teri Williams and Rachael Kelly

Students, faculty, staff, members of the the campus community, and the general public look to your events calendar to find what’s happening on campus, but it can be difficult and time consuming to know about and publish all of the details about every event going on at your college or university. Last year Boise State University rolled out a new system to discover, edit and publish events with ease. Join us as we talk about the project from start to finish including tips and lessons learned along the way.

Learn:
How to use WordPress plugins to cost-effectively create a full-featured university events calendar.
How college and department events can seamlessly flow into the university events calendar.
How to maintain quality and editorial control over your university events calendar.
