Ateneo web consultation meeting with Spinweb Technologies on 28 Jan 2012

To all web coordinators and point persons:

A web consultation meeting will be held on January 28, Saturday at 9:30 AM to 12 PM with the developers from Spinweb Technologies Inc., the group selected to redesign the Ateneo website.

We at the University Communication and Public Relations Office (UCPRO) would like to stress the importance of this consultation as it will be the basis for the direction of the web development work and of how the new website will look, both to its markets (external and internal) and to the web users.

The Ateneo de Manila University website was last redesigned in 2005. Mostly because of technological advances and in the way the Internet has become a part of people’s daily lives, the UCPRO deemed it necessary to revamp the Ateneo website, one of the university’s most important communication tools both within the community and with the outside world.

In the second half of 2011, a call was then put out for groups to redesign
<http://www.ateneo.edu> http://www.ateneo.edu.  Initially almost 50 web development groups answered the call, and these groups were pared down to seven. These seven groups then presented their ideas to a web advisory committee composed of technical and design minded people.

They were further trimmed down until only Spinweb Technologies Inc. was chosen to do the make-over of the Ateneo website, it’s design and content management system as well.

Before Spinweb’s development  team can begin their work, they would like to get the input of all the sectors and departments involved, which basically means that of the entire university.

In line with this, the development team of Spinweb will present their ideas for the new website and will show designated website users  for each department how much easier it will be for them to do so. They will also gather feedback for the redesigned site.

Their presentation and an ensuing question and answer session will be held on Saturday, January 28, at 9:30 am at the multi-purpose hall on the ground floor of Faber Hall.

Please nominate point persons for each department to attend this meeting then please inform the UCPRO (email jjavellana-santos@ateneo.edu) who will be attending by Friday, January 20, 2012.
