The migration of all websites from Polopoly into the new CMS EdWeb is gathering pace with the first three Schools lined up and ready to go.

We are currently in the process of migrating all websites from Polopoly into EdWeb – our new Drupal-based Content Management System. Two small migration phases are now complete but we still have a long way to go. Experience gained, alongside a feedback session and an in-depth review of the process, has allowed the migration to […]

We’ve always wanted to make the new EdWeb CMS offering as flexible as possible and one way that we are achieving this is to allow people to take a copy of the CMS distribution; install it, host it and run it themselves. For those technically minded folk who know what a LAMP stack is the […]

Everyone knows that it’s essential to build accessibility into projects at the earliest possible stage. However we created our accessibility principles before work even started on building EdWeb – our new Drupal based CMS.

The first site went live in the new EdWeb CMS this week. As it’s the beta version of the CMS we didn’t want to have a huge launch with a fanfare at this point. But it’s still a major milestone for us.

We have over 300 sites and 70,000 pages to migrate from Polopoly into EdWeb – our new Drupal-based Content Management System. We are planning to do this over 3 main migration phases starting in March 2015. We recently started communication with our web publishing community to allocate them one of these phases.

The UWP are proud to share that we have won another award, bronze sustainability, and also that the University has a new unit – the Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability.

What do you do with 300 user stories instead of a huge business requirements document? How do you put them into some sort of order? Where do you start?
