EdWeb migration preparation sessions

Due to the popularity of our trial EdWeb migration preparation session, we’re now going to conduct these sessions on a monthly basis to assist editors with their preparation work before their move from Polopoly to EdWeb.

I have previously written about our intention to run a session detailing the steps to prepare for a Polopoly site’s migration to EdWeb.

Website Support Clinic update – EdWeb migration preparation

The feedback from attendees on our session showed that more detail on our preparation steps was useful to understand more about why we were asking for these steps to be undertaken; and to understand more about what a site will look like in EdWeb in general.

Just to reiterate some of the things I mentioned previously – we have a set of key preparation tasks that will prepare a site for the move to EdWeb. Some of them are very small, some could require no action – but all are relevant to be aware of.

Our feedback has suggested that people had questions on these areas, in particular:

  • Which pages will migrate
  • What format will my pages migrate in?
  • Will my website structure alter after migration?
  • What will happen to my images?

I’ve also had questions about technical pages (proxies/feed consumption); forms; integration of external content from the UWP widgets (twitter feeds, map and calendar embeds); re-use of content, both within and amongst sites; and what features of EdWeb to be aware of, and prepare for. It’s great to know that University editors are keen to see what the new system can provide, and it’s very rewarding to deliver good news on the improved and additional functions that EdWeb can provide.

If you’re interested in coming along to find out more about the steps you can take to make the migration process as smooth as possible, or how your site might look following the migration, our sessions are now available to book on the MyEd events system.
