Topic: Brainstorming session on SEO for the WSUWP Platform and WSU websites. Location Change: ITB 2071 Time: 9:30 am – 11:00 am
For open lab this Friday we’d like to spend some time discussing search engine optimization needs for WSU websites. Specifically we’d like to hear from you what tools, features, and training you think would be beneficial to improving SEO on your site(s).
If you have any questions about SEO or general website support Open Lab is a great place to bring them!
To ensure continuity on all the great web work already underway, Danial Bleile will serve as the interim technical lead for the WSU web communication team. In addition to his current responsibilities as the senior WordPress developer, he also will manage the priorities of the web communication unit as well as oversee the newly formed web governance team.
Jason Bittle will serve as the lead designer for the new web design system. Eric Limburg and Danial Bleile will partner closely with Jason to continue the positive momentum that already has been done on this important effort.
Thank you to Danial, Jason and Eric for taking on these additional responsibilities. I will reach out again as we get closer to determining a permanent solution for the web communication team lead. As always, weekly open lab sessions will continue to be scheduled every Friday morning at 9:30am. Please contact our Jira Service Desk if you have any questions or issues.
It is bittersweet that I announce Clint Young’s resignation from his position as Senior Project Manager and Interim Director of Web Communication at WSU. Clint has accepted an awesome opportunity as Senior Global Marketing Project Manager at Itron, a global company that specializes in technology and services for the energy and water resource sectors. His last day in the office will be Friday, April 5.
Clint’s impact to the university throughout his more than seven-year tenure reaches far and wide. His limitless energy and fervent passion will be greatly missed. The web community and our team’s project management efforts have gained a tremendous amount of positive momentum under Clint’s leadership these past few months. Over the next three weeks, we will build a detailed transition plan to keep those efforts already underway moving forward. In addition, we intend to appoint an interim lead for the unit, with the goal of a permanent solution determined by fall 2019.
As Clint takes on new professional challenges, please take some time to thank him for all of that he has done for WSU. We are all better because of his contributions. Please reach out to me if you have any immediate questions or concerns. Otherwise, I will be in touch again soon.
