The latest update on the EdWeb Project (Issue 5) was out last week. Key topics this issue are an update on the migration project and tweaks to the process based on feedback from the early adopter group and the availability of the EdWeb distribution.
You can find the project update and lots of other project information, on the project communications log and the UWP website.

The second phase of the migration is now complete and we have 15 sites live in EdWeb. If you want to have a look, you can see these sites by going to the Migration checklist page of the Migration Handbook wiki, where there is a link to each site. Going by this route will also introduce you to the wiki checklist pages that form the main communication log and record between our migration liaison contacts and lead publishers around the University.
Each lead publisher will have a wiki page recording key information and migration process milestones as their sites are migrated into the new system. Feedback from the phase two group suggests that they found this to be an efficient and helpful way of staying in touch with the process and tasks involved.
We’re now in dialogue with the phase three lead publishers who are due to begin migration in March. As ever we would urge you to begin preparation of your website as soon as you can, regardless of your phase. When you get a moment take a look at the Editorial task checklist in the Migration Handbook for an overview of the pre-migration tasks you will need to undertake – we look forward to working with you!
