We’ve been using the insight and suggestions gathered in last autumn’s website content planning workshops to steer the development of content types for the new Drupal content management system.

Our monthly Web Publishing Community meetings provide a convivial forum for the University’s web managers, editors and developers to discuss current projects and new opportunities.

I’ve been thinking about social media sharing buttons recently. This kind of functionality is on the to-do list for the new Drupal CMS. I’m currently wondering whether they’re worth bothering with at all.

One of the most important aspects in embracing Drupal as the framework behind the new CMS of the University of Edinburgh, is engaging with its enthusiastic and creative community. As part of this strategy, the University sponsored Drupal Camp Scotland 2014 and contributed with two, very interesting presentations.

We’ve made a few changes recently to our communications process to better reflect the range of activities and support we offer, and help minimise unnecessary mails to the web community.

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.

The University of Edinburgh is a huge institution with a big beast of a website, so as the newest recruit to the University Website Programme team – Editorial Development Officer – I’m still finding my feet in week three.

Rachel Bhandari has recently joined our team. In her role as Editorial Officer she’ll be supporting our work with the Global Academies and the Student Experience Project as well as contributing to our training, support and communication activities.

The aim of this book is to equip anyone working with web content for the challenges of the multi-device, mashable, social media-curated online world.

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?
