The first campus Web Office Hours on Dec. 20 was a great success! Participants engaged in a very thoughtful discussion about content and content strategy, especially as they relate to Mobile First and Content First thinking. Another one of these sessions will be scheduled this winter. If you’d like to be notified, contact Nick Weaver at University Communications.
