Duct Tape & Barb Wire: DIY Redesign Planning without a Consultant


Budgets are tight. Staff is short. Yet your deadlines are real and VP expectations are high! How do you deliver the goods when your pockets are nearly empty? With a major website redesign looming in 2017, UCO first had to perform a total makover and upgrade of their campus portal. After using a combination of free and low cost online tools matched with old school techniques, the UCO web team developed a roadmap for the journey ahead. In this presentation Darren Denham, Web Content Manager for the University of Central Oklahoma will share the ideas and tools the Web Team found that will help them (and you) prepare for a major University website redesign project.
