Our joint proposal to HighEdWeb has been accepted!
Come to HighEdWeb 2009 to hear Reason users from Carleton, Kalamazoo, Luther, and Beloit Colleges discuss "Implementing Reason CMS with Small Teams and Small Budgets."
The session will be held on Monday, October 5 from 10:45 AM to 11:30 AM.
The full description
Many people think that implementing a full-featured web content management system (CMS) requires a huge team, deep pockets, or both. Reason, an open source CMS developed for higher education, is one remedy for small budgets, small teams, and a growing need for content management.
While commercial CMS acquisitions often involve an outside team and high initial and ongoing costs, Reason provides a lean alternative, with no upfront cost and a friendly developer community. Many schools integrate Reason alongside existing content, starting with just a few offices or departments. Come to this session to learn about the experiences of Carleton, Beloit, Luther, and Kalamazoo Colleges in implementing and using Reason. Each school will provide some background on their web teams, institutional needs, and CMS selection processes. Time will be provided for Q & A, and participants will receive a LiveDVD with a functional Reason installation.
