Back in March 2012, the Department of French & Italian Studies graciously served as the pilot for a new service to design and support websites out of the dean's office and the marketing communications team. That service evolved into the Department Web Framework. Five years later, we've revisited the site and given them a complete visual redesign. Check it out at https://frenchitalian.washington.edu
Empowering Departments to Deliver Great Content
The Department Web Framework is a free service provided by the UW College of Arts & Sciences Marketing & Communications team. We design, build, and host websites for the College's departments, so they can focus on their content and communication strategies.
There are currently 30 departments using the framework service. It is available to academic departments in all four divisions: Arts, Humanities, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences. If your department is interested in joining, contact Shane Fricks. What if I'm not eligible?
We've got lots of tutorials and background information in our documentation and help section.
For notices of system downtime, upgrades, new features, and workshops, join the asweb-users mailing list.
Not all units are eligible for the framework. Learn more about Arts & Sciences web services at the College's Marketing site.
Our next Department Web Framework users meeting will be Tuesday, November 7, 2017, from 1:00-2:00pm in CMU 202 (Simpson Center seminar room). The topic will be calendars and events – what web calendar systems are available? what kind of events belong on your department calendar? how can you share events with other departments? how can you manage event registration? what approaches have worked or not worked for you and your department?
Our team is excited to announce two enhancements for department sites:
