@tul66118 Hello Jill, I was wondering if your background in journalism has provided you an opportunity to work with content management systems or website publishing? At my job, we are working toward empowering content creators to work in our content management system directly and publish their own work. It’s a great way to get an introduction to web design/development and content management systems.
Yes – the journalism degree has probably been my most applied degree in the last 17 years of working in higher education. My degree included courses in html and web design and I’ve designed a number of websites over the years. The college where I now work allows users to be trained to enter content and edit – once approved the “go live” button is hit in the PR office. It’s great – but most people don’t have time with their other jobs to do justice to the freedom we have in terms of content and the college hasn’t done a great job of making sure the pages are uniform. Happy to talk more about what is working and what doesn’t.
