Webmaster Camp 2010

The Office of Information Technology works with University Brand Services to create and maintain the campus Web site. In an effort to share the fruits of this collaboration with the rest of the campus community, IT is offering a series of seminars we're calling "Webmaster Camp." Held one day each week across six consecutive weeks, these day-long seminars will provide instruction and hands-on training in the technologies and techniques required to build a good, stable site, with the goal of helping participants in the adoption of the UM Web Template for their respective sites. (You're looking at an example of it now!)

Session Topics


Webmaster Camp sessions will meet Tuesdays, 9:00 - 4:00, April 20, 27, May 4, 11, 18, and 25.


Departments save money by adopting the free UM Web Template instead of paying to have a new design created. The departmental webmaster receives free training and assistance in doing his or her job. The University overall benefits by having a more strongly-branded and consistent Web presence.

Participating departments will also receive the Adobe Web Premium CS4 software bundle (including Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Contribute, Acrobat, and more) and books on a variety of Web design topics. This package is valued at approximately $450.


A participating webmaster must be sponsored by his or her department and should be committed to working there at least through the end of the calendar year. Participants and sponsors must agree to adopt the UM Web Template for their sponsor's sites, with much of the work being done during these camp sessions.
