Last Few Things
Monteith informationCommented out for the time being Graduate Degrees information (currently only have CSC information in there) Graduate section - need images (+borders)
- Research - Facilities, Funded Projects, Research Areas need latin replaced
- something's screwy on ie6 alumni announcements - think it might be an issue with MultipleIE - would need real IE6 to test it
- need to see if MyECE has everything it needs before release
- need to redo some web forms in new templates - good for workstudies?
Corporate Advisory Board file areahtpass needs to be updated when moved to ece Naming Rights latinCommented Out for the time being Outreach sectionCommented Out for the time being ECE-GSA logo site map graduate content still reflects csc plans of work
Things to fix that the Fac/Staff found
- Need to update the top right photos so they change...
"I'm sorry, Dan, but I have to ask. Why does your name come up under "Associated Area Faculty" for Security and Reliable/Fault-Tolerant Computing? (http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/research/cas/rafc)" Doh! Those lists are supposed to be filtering out Staff -- the old ones do! Doh... they don't either!updated on both On the Research Centers page (http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/research/centers/), I hate the squeezed logo used on the CESR picture. (I know it was there in the old version, and I hated it then, too.) If you need something that's square, please just use the backwards 'C' with the dot, and leave off the letters.updated, still think the images as a whole need to be updated, but that can be a post-release thing
- I find it a bit disorienting when the lefthand menu changes. For example, I'm on the research page (http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/research/), and I'm interested in browsing through funded projects, undergraduate research, journals, etc. When I click on Undergraduate Research, I'm sent to the right page (http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/undergraduate/research/), but it's in the "Undergraduate Studies" category, which means that the lefthand navigation menu is completely different. Sure, I understand that I can use the back button to get back, but it interrupts my flow through the "ECE Research" topic. I'm not sure what can be done, other than duplicating the page under both categories, and I'm not even sure that's the right thing. we had it showing up in both places before and you didn't like it that way
- I have the same problem with the Course Listing under the U/Grad sites... but that we should be able to fix easily. I'd like the courses "site" moved INTO the U/Grad sites.
Might I suggest a Letter tab at the top of the faculty directory? i.e. Last names begin with “A B C …” or “A-C, D-F…” Just my 2 cents… Sincerely, A representative from a “Y” who would like to be able to click instead of scroll to the bottom… not a bad idea, plus i like Ginger - should we go with in-page anchors or some dynamic JS like the search? Remove AEMP Dir Title from Osburn. Add Dir, TNLC to Mehmet. Also make Mehmet the Faculty lead for NNF. Update http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/news/contacts/ to list me instead of Bob. Update the "assoc fac" query on the research pages to include "Research Faculty".pages also updated to include dynamic elements http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/graduate/distance_education -- last line. Change "Distance Education" to "Engineering Online"; change link to point to the main page at http://EngineeringOnline.ncsu.edu http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/about/contact/ -- near bottom; change "HelpDesk" to "IT HelpDesk"
- Directory changes...
http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/people/research -- all Visiting Researchers/Visiting Scholars/Visiting Scientists here need to be moved to http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/people/visfaculty/. Once we do so, need to make sure they're on the right mailing list as well. Change "Technical Staff" to "IT Staff"; Change "Research Staff" to "Technical Staff". Move Rudy, Lassister to Technical Staff. Only display title, not rank for Staff. http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/people/#Z doesn't work.
Things to do b/f Release
I want the new site NOW, so let's start crossing these (literally please) of the list... http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/
Highlight the "latin text" sections... Update the "Text Only" link in the footer to point at http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/textonly/ then have that bounce people to the transcoder... need a link that people will be able to remember. ece/text/ perhaps? Make the Search bar work. currently uses the ECE look vs the ECE2 look, but that can be fixed after release <= it seems to be using the ECE2 template.. did you mean the ECE index?sorry, forgot to update the list on this, works now (it is still only searching ece since ece2 is behind wrap) Fix the title photo for Search Update the RSS icon so it more closely matches the Cal/Photo icons -- http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/free-rss-feed-icons-the-ultimate-list/ The fonts in the footer change from the frontpage to the rest... fix. Point "Support" in the footer to www.wolftech.ncsu.edu Remove "Disclaimer" in the footer -- if we need to have something later, we'll create it then. Put the correct links in the NCSU Header links -- use the ones for the current www.ncsu.edu website. Need to figure out where to link in Graduation... I was going to do an overlay on the main page of the main image That's fine for the "get their attention" times, but we need a permanent link somewhere. either the community or the news&event nav bar, probablyI put it on undergraduate This touches the same issue one of the faculty had with undergraduate research redirecting to a whole different page (changing navbar and banner image, etc.) Validate Courses page Not sure about this, but lets take a look at putting a little more space btn the NCSU bar and the rest of the site... Let's see how it looks. If not great, we might try making it a black background at the top...not thrilled with how it looks need more descriptive page titles (hrm, did I write this? What on earth was I referring to?) i did, i meant the <title> information (ex: look at the news pages now) Might want to rethink the - Newsroom - Dept of...." part... the long titles cut most of that off... perhaps just - ECE Newsroom ? fixed on News and People, need to add more descriptive names on other areasshould be good most places now
Photos in Home and under the Facilities section need a better border around them. Something to give them more umph. example: http://www.saxion.edu/about-saxion/ Redo the section title image and fix the too early fade on the right. Fade should start with the 'g' in Engineering. Which g? Driving Drs -- http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/about/directions -- make RDU and Google Maps their own boxes under the current two. remove the "temp" section of the nav Move the "Mission Statement' section with Trews photo/intro to the top of "Home". Remove that section header when you do. Page should start with his statement/photo.
remove Publications page and Nav element. rename "Mission Statement to "Program Goals". in order: Home, Program Goals, Statistics, Publications, Committees, Employment, Driving Directions, Contact Us. ('adtl resources' section goes away) make 2nd section -- Facilities Overview -- existing text Engineering Building II -- pilfer the Promise site (which will likely dissapear at some point) SECTION CREATED, #WEB DAN TODO#Just needs the numbers, and some content filler needs a different inset picture and different colored circles as wellHave added the section that were going to be added to the teaching labs section. Content might need to be refined. Moneith Engineering Research Center -- should include your section on Liquid Motion. Section on Cleanroom... SECTION CREATED, #WEB DAN TODO#I need information about the clean room. Need to reference the ERC that funded the building. Teaching Labs --- Overview, Collaboratories, Public Computer labs (suck info from here: http://www.wolftech.ncsu.edu/support/support/Computer_Labs SECTION CREATED, #WEB DAN TODO# Needs more details on the Tlabs... Add in Classroom section w/ a photo of 1025 and one other non-auditorium classroom. Still missing info on the public (EOS) lab -- get from here http://www.eos.ncsu.edu/labs/ -- also need to mention the Dist Ed facilties in the building -- delta.ncsu.edu should have some info on our two classrooms. Wouldn't it make more sense to put this information into the EBII section as it already has a list of the number of classrooms, teaching labs, etc.? Centennial Campus SECTION CREATED, #WEB DAN TODO# Just needs content and stats for the associated section. Use http://centennial.ncsu.edu/ for fodder. Include a corp relations section on this page like the one you have on the RTP page; use ABB and RedHat to start. http://centennial.ncsu.edu/ has absolutely nothing to pull from - I'm not sure they do much maintaining on it
- Steal text from here (http://centennial.ncsu.edu/overview/ourPurpose.html) and here (http://centennial.ncsu.edu/overview/index.html) to create the first paragraph or two of this page.
- Use this to fill in the Hunt info: http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/huntlibrary/
- http://centennial.ncsu.edu/directory/index.html / samples from http://centennial.ncsu.edu/directory/corporate.html
http://centennial.ncsu.edu/amenities/ccms.htmlAdded all relevant information, opening paragraph is a work-in-progress. Research Triangle Park (not a link, but content page) SECTION CREATED, #WEB DAN TODO# (fix nav link) need descriptions for companies Use http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Research_Triangle_Park and http://www.rtp.org/main/ I've pulled together some information about the companies with Sony Ericsson needing some more meat to its paragraph
- What is it? Where is it?
- Why important? / Benefits?
- Company Overview / Career Opportunities
- Use the logo.
make 3nd section -- Department History rename existing link to "Overview" split Highlights into own page move Dept Heads here reorder so they get older as you scroll down...
move Why ECE to Ugrad section. Committees -- we're missing the ECE GSA Advisor. explain This is Greg Byrd... for now, add in like we have the HKN / IEEE listed... but with any luck, we'll move this entire page to MyECE later. Not a huge fan of it. stylize and validate committee pages - add in missing information #WEB DAN TODO# he'll do a general design, i'll put in the php codeA style has been created on the ABET page and should be referenced for the overall design Contact us -- Matt Craver contends that the following address works for both USPS and Shippers; need to confirm with Marj/Brenda, etc and if so, recommend that the dept start using it (rather than the 2 separate ones we have now), and then update the Contact Us page with it:
890 Oval Drive Engineering Building 2, Room 3114 Campus Box 7911 Raleigh, NC 27695
(“Campus Box 7911” needs to be on the line directly above the line w/ the zip code for the post office) Richard says that Marj says "No" as well as a shaking of the fist.
News & Events
- Make decisions re: RSS/iCAL feeds and set them up.
Redo the section title image and fix the too early fade on the right. Fade should start with the 'g' in Engineering. Update the headlines to id those that are features on the frontpage. Fix the Article links so stuff link "View Original Article" or even the entire "Engineering News Links" on http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/news/10891 don't show up. Make "Send to Friend" functional. Clean up Search news... actually... do we even need this? Remove "CACC" as News sublink. Click on "ECE Undergraduate" sublink... note the first black bar. Can we fix this on the subpages? What's causing the mess up on the 2002 archive page? Fix the hor bar under the articles on the main Newsroom page Turn Archived ECE News into a pulldown.
- Need to figure out how we're going to integrate "Newsroom", News&Events, and Calendar... doesn't make sense currently.
Need to resolve issue with months greater than the current year which causes the archive sub-menu on the navbar to open up. Should this be classified under 'current' so that current option on the navbar remains highlighted, or should a 'future' option be added? Images that can expand need to have an indicator on the bottom right of the photo... a plus sign or a magnifying glass. CSS issues are still cropping up :(still would prefer calendar be at top in html Need an ICAL page similar to the RSS Feed page
- Need a better title image. i like the current one, personally
Headlines Current (should list all 2008 headlines -- past and upcoming) Archives (as you have it now) RSS Feed
- Current (should list all 2008 events -- past and upcoming)
Archives (as Headlines does it) iCal Feed #WEB DAN TODO# - make a page for itpage done, we will need to fix the png icons for IE6 Publications (??? not sure this will remain here or in About Us)... well, these are PR materials... thus News...
- http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/news/reports -- put annual report in same box layout as others.
Annual Report need a page listing annual reportsNeed to rename this. All of the PR materials, brochures need to be listed here: Dept Brochure, Grad Brochure, Grad Poster, InfoSheet, Annual Report, etc. Theses and Dissertations (move http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/pubs/etd here)update to use new feed from Library... there might be a bit more info to put on the main page, like CPE or EE. Scholarly Publications (will be the Libraries SPR info) Technical Reports (empty for the moment) fix so they point at blank pages for now.need info Research Posters (empty for the moment) fix so they point at blank pages for now.need info College Newsletters Archival Publications (use current info in "archival" section + the "departmental newsletters" section) Remove the "Archival Pubs" section inside... they're all that... needs a better name, might want to break up that section too. Perhaps "College Pubs" and "Dept Pubs" sections/breakdown? Media Information General Contacts (treat this like the "Contact Info" page on the Corporate site... in fact, basically duplicate for now).would recc using the About Us contact page instead Experts List (manually grab the info from the following pages until we can setup something automated: http://www.ncsu.edu/univ_relations/expertsonline/search.php?subject=Computer+Engineering, http://www.ncsu.edu/univ_relations/expertsonline/search.php?subject=Biomedical, http://www.ncsu.edu/univ_relations/expertsonline/search.php?subject=Electrical+Engineering, http://www.ncsu.edu/univ_relations/expertsonline/search.php?subject=Microelectronics (ignore first and last), http://www.ncsu.edu/univ_relations/expertsonline/search.php?subject=Robotics Quick Facts about ECE (based on http://news.duke.edu/resources/quickfacts.html -- Leda is preparing a one page info sheet for ECE that I planned to use to help with our stats page. Will definitely also fill this page). (given... should have plenty of info for this page now) #WEB DAN TODO#Just needs some final revisions and addition of other information Logos -- should have versions of the ECE logo (plus the one we used on the newer research sites), a section of COE logos (unless they have a page we can link to), and the link to the NCSU Logo page. Need files on that one brick logo Photo Gallery (static page with text similar to http://www.dukenews.duke.edu/resources/freephotos.html at the top... Put in a reference to giving credit where used... then a link to the Gallery... OR we add a page into the Gallery itself that talks about usage rights and then link to that page directly when clicking on the Newsroom nav link...
[need a button at the bottom -- think the "give now" button -- that has "Subscribe for Email Updates" that links to the TownCrier Subscriptions page] added the lightbuld
Change "All Faculty" to "Primary Faculty" Redo the section title image and fix the too early fade on the right. Fade should start with the 'g' in Engineering.
hide Grad Fellows/Grad Assistants for now. make admin/research/tech staff work. NEED THE PROPER GROUPS IN THE DB TO DO THIS, DONT KNOW WHO IS WHAT On your chair. Be sure to first update the ece dir code so the group changes won't muck up the live site. remove All StaffWe need to rename All Faculty to something different point Advisory Board to correct link Needs inset pic, or would you prefer it just points to corporate? (point) point Fac Awards and Honors to correct link Don't worry about approval? (correct, not public, so no big deal) Lets update this to look at bit more like http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/undergraduate/computer_engineering. Less blah. #WEB DAN TODO Remove the current "Edit Profile", replace with image, think the "Give now" image in Alumni, but smaller, and centered.
Add in an AJAX search option so as you type in a name, the people appear. Add another field to the "title" DB so we can mark the non-center/non-administrative "Director" titles, then don't display these on the new Directory.
remove the red bars next to each section. remove "similar faculty why no titles for research fac on profile? If you don't have any profile information, don't link to the subpage. Scratch that -- we decided to put up a "no further information is available for this person" text instead...
link the "edit my profile" button to Dossier.
Redo the section title image and fix the too early fade on the right. Fade should start with the 'g' in Engineering. change the nav "ECE at NC State" to "Why NC State?" On the EE and CPE pages, we need links to the current 'pre06' pages. Which should also be nicely formatted. #WEB DAN TODO# just linked them to the registrar curri page Not acceptable -- must create special pages for this. Registrar doesn't have the correct info. Special case. Add in a "Links" section that uses the "Financial Aid" and "NC State Admissions" links. New page under prospective students -- "Transfer Information" within should be the links found on the current Ugrad Advising page http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/academics/ugrad/advising/
Replace widgets w/ plain Ugrad photos. Perhaps we'll bring it back later.kept the stats widget
- How to Apply
Needs #s next to each section. Summer Workshop... need a link to this ffrom the Outreach page... Should probably just move to Outreach altogether, agree? Go for it. It can be one of our first subpages for the Outreach section. Ugrad Research stays here. Change the Research version to a link to it. Fix the layout of this page -- the headers/content/images need to be moved around a bit to fit together better. though the page URL needs to change to /undergraduate/research
Move Course Listing and Senior Design to General Info Rename Ugrad Curric to 'Ugrad Degrees' Rename Accelerated Degree to Accelerated Masters Move Adivising FAQ to General Info and rename to Frequently Asked Questions Clean up Double Major -- make similar to the EE/CPE 'pretty' layout. #WEB DAN TODO# Move "ABET Accred" under "Home" need to tone Why ECE down, plus space it out... bit overbearing at the moment I toned it down, #WEB DAN TODO# - pictures Why is the top of Course Listing missing or messed up? http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/undergraduate/apply -- each section should have a cooresponding image on the right. Doesn't have to be a photo... clip art will probably be more appropriate. #WEB DAN TODO# Convert to this format -- http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/about/centennial Not sure I follow what you are wanting as far as how that style would apply. Use the line/circle look.Do we still want 'clip art' in circles for this, or is the current set up good? Senior Design... nav shouldn't link to their site... but to a page that gives an overview, has a photo of Bart (w/title, contact info, think Tara's Corporate contact page, but just a corner of this page), and a content widget of the current sponsors (widget of this content http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/seniordesign/sponsors.php). On that page should be the direct link to their site. Should have a couple glossy photos of students in Troxler and at SD Day. #WEB DAN TODO#Might need some of its own content thats not found on the current senior design page Need to see the http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/seniordesign URL somewhere obvious on this page. (for more info...) http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/undergraduate/abm -- see the reference to Joel? Update to Leda. Believe we need a link to the 2+2 Program in the Degree section, above the Accelerated Masters link. Details: http://engineeringonline.ncsu.edu/degreesandcertificates/undergrad.htm
(this is just a first run through... needs much more work than this, but have to start somewhere) Thought we were waiting on the grad office on this. We currently have a copy of CSC's on ours - should we go with that our use the current ECE graduate material? Fix the bits I've mentioned, then I'll take another run. Yes, the Grad Office will be helping, but I want to give them structure first.
- Navigation (we'll keep this similar to the Ugrad pages)
General Information Home, Course Listing, GRE/TOEFL Requirements, Financial Aid Opportunities (remove Cost/), Admissions Procedure, Admissions Deadlines, Admissions Status, Contact Us. Replace the text on F/A opps with the text here: http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/academics/grad/submitta.php Remove Information for International Students link -- the contents of that page -- InfoExchange, need to be moved to the Ugrad/Grad intranet
Graduate Degrees Each of the Masters as you have it now (Master of or Masters of?)did M.S. to prevent wrapping to new line Split PHD into PhD in Electrical Engineering and PhD in Computer Engineering split on the nav, but they both go to the same spot These need to be seperate pages -- please fix. Distance Education Options
Additional Information University Graduate School Graduate Student Association
Remove the Current Student section.
Rename "GRE/TOEFL Requirements" to "Admissions Requirements"; move to above Admissions Procedure. Replace text with text here: http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/academics/grad/admissions/requirements.php Replace text in Admissions Deadlines w/ text: http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/academics/grad/admissions/deadlines.php Replace text in Admissions Procedures w/text: http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/academics/grad/admissions/apply.php (drop the Additional info section at the bottom). Take the 3rd paragraph from http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/academics/grad/admissions/index.php and put it at the top of http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/graduate/financial_aid Take the 1st/2nd paras from http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/academics/grad/admissions/index.php and put it at the top of the Admiss Procedures page. Financial Aid page needs to include a Fellowship section w/ a link to http://www.ncsu.edu/grad/financial-support/opportunities.html -- use some of that intro text as the section text.
- Add some photos into these pages to beef them up. Still a work in progress, I am not sure what photos would be best used in these areas.
Photo needed on Home
Needs "Course Listing" just like Ugrad has. Move Home above the first section... want to see how this looks. Remove Faculty Research Move content of "Our Vision" to Home, then delete page. Rename "Degrees" section to "Graduate Degrees" and move to be 1st section on Nav. Remove "People" page, "Graduate Research History" page, FAQs page Move link "University Graduate School to bottom of "Prospective Students" section, then remove "General Info" section. Move the "PHD" to the bottom of the Degrees. Throw in a reference to the Masters of Networking.
Create me mirroring (right side) version of that "highlighted text/excerpt" seen on the Ugrad homepage. Under the degree section, need a page for Distance Education -- should have the basic info from this page (http://engineeringonline.ncsu.edu/degreesandcertificates/graduate.htm) and a main "for more info, http://engineeringonline.ncsu.edu" predominately at the bottom of the page.
I need some Google Charts. These should be listed in the "Research Stats" subsection of the Research home page. Preferably, when you click on them, you'd get larger versions which could be used by faculty in presentations. I want one of these charts to be chosen and placed at the bottom left of the fluff text on the Funded Projects page; reduce the latin text by whatever amount this chart will take up.
- Sizes of grants: barchart that breaks down our grants by 0-49,999;50,000-99,999;100,000-249,999;250,000-499,999;500,000-999,999;1,000,000+
- Total $ by Agency Type: use UNIT_Code
- Grants by Agency Type: use UNIT_Code
- Breakdown of Federal Funding by Agency: # and $
Anything else you think might be interesting.Adblock on firefox seems to be blocking some of the charts Put a paragraph of latin text on the home page -- need to fill it out more. Why is the page messed up suddenly? Replace latin in Center Descriptions. Replace photo of Ghovanloo in top right. Facilities needs to show the RESEARCH facilities... cleanroom and anything else we can think of. Sections on:
- Make this page look like http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/community/ -- throw in some latin text at the top.
Cleanroom (mention the building was funded by ERC)ERC mention is better suited to the MRC page HPC
- RENCI Visualization
- Triangle National Lithography Center
... Replace Latin in Funded Projects description
fix the title of the "Associated Faculty" subbox. Think I'd rather keep it on the right like you do on the Research Focus Areas pages. not sure where you mean on this http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/research/mrad/dc -- see how Assoc Faculty is layed out on this microarea? Now look at the macroarea. Prefer the former.fixed, but had to move the Sample Plans of Work to one of the bigger boxes to make it work
- replace the Latin text
Assoc Courses links need to point to ece/courses/ not CourseMax Coursemax seems to be missing some classes put in default "not currently offered" case
- add in Lazzi's ERC (BMES?) if it's BEML (http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/beml/index.htm), it's already included under Groups and Labs
Add an NSF medallion to the text (bottom left) of CACC and TNLC. http://www.nsf.gov/policies/logos.jsp; would suggest using version1 as its the most well known. Something sized btwn the small gif and the large jpg.
change "Director:" to "Lead Faculty:" need to reorg a bit better, two columns?
Fix the text on the main page -- replace the needed text w/ Latin so its obvious. Redo the section title image and fix the too early fade on the right. Fade should start with the 'g' in Engineering. it's the same fade as every other section title :( Corporate missing from left nav. it was on the main link bar so we didn't need it here
- Replace Latin text.
Rename "Resources" to "NC State Resources" add Student Media -- http://www.ncsu.edu/sma/index.htm add Study Abroad -- http://studyabroad.ncsu.edu/ add Community Service -- http://www.ncsu.edu/campus-life/community-service/index.php add Student Organizations -- http://www.ncsu.edu/sorc/ Make the links to their sites more visible (should see http://blah somewhere)
- Bigger logos have to wait until after the switch since it's DBed
- Add a photo for each if we can (for some, we have events we hosted for them -- look in there)
- Add in the minority groups -- WISE, Hispanics Engr, Black Engr, etc. not ECE organizations Still want them.
add Campus Recreation -- http://www.ncsu.edu/campus_rec/
Sections aren't organized alphabetically, should be: Alum,Corp, Entr, Out, Photo, Studs No idea why we have "Ethics" here... need to find more appropriate location. About Us or Undergraduate would be the most appropriate places, probably - other options are to make it an internal site page or to boot it altogethermoved under Undergraduate PhotoGall on the Community index page -- link it in. fix the link on the image.
needs page or two.
- email sent to Barlage seeking information
anything that we might nick from the new Engr Outreadch site? Not reallyOpen House, Nano Days, Rudy's Summer Workshop... um, what else? Science House, Escuti's AventWest Middle School Outreach Program #WEB DAN TODO#waiting for information from Dr. Barlage Have we emailed Leda and Escuti? i know you've verbally told leda, dunno about escuti Update the Nav to the following: Home, K-12, Summer Workshops, Open House, Design Day, Departmental Tours, Outreach at NC State Add an REU section to the Summer Workshops (if we need to, take some of the general info here: http://www.ncsu.edu/undergrad-research/Studentsa/summer-research-programs.php) K-12 is the AWMS page, we'll hopefully add another section here later. Actually... lets put the Science House section here... And Nano Days.
- Science House needs to have in internal page that explains what it is and our involvement (Leda), then has a prominent link to their site (aka like the SD page on Ugrad). need info on Leda's involvement, everything else done
OpenHouse -- this will be the new home of the content here: http://www.ece.ncsu.edu/openhouse/ -- so move it all in. Will need references to the older ones. Once we go live, we'll put a redirect on the ece/openhouse url to point here.
move the content of the "Alumni Benefits" page to the bottom of this Home. Make into last section. Make "Supporting ECE" its own nav section Make Tax Benefits look like Planned Giving/Endowment pages (layout) Links of Interest First, rename rename "College of Engr" to Engr Alumni, and point to that rather than main Engr site. remove Frontline and NCSU links
- Alumni-only Tools
rename to Alumni Benefits looks like you have the "internal" tools working... need to clean them up though... everything works and validates and looks good now #WEB DAN TODO## - check CSS in the IEs (come see me for a login)
- Student Orgs -- replace Latin text.
Remove the "you may also be intersted" OR move to the top paragraph. http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/alumni/featured_alumni -- need a "read the full interview" link to make it obvious there's more to these... Replace the "News" section on the top right with a photo of students graduating, perferably two or three smiling, standing together.
- Overview and SyMatt pages need some photos to flush it out.
Move the "Make a gift now" icon from Corporate to Alumni.
- Associates Program
Remove "Current Partners" and move all of the icons under the intro text of the Assoc Prgm page. Go through our recent news and make sure there's not more "Associates in Action" fodder -- the Progress Energy 1.25Million donation for example. paginate this page into multiples. remove the last article that gives the names of the advisory board.
- Replace Latin in Advisory Board.
Check the table listing the board -- looks funky in IE7. Naming Rights page needs a couple photos of the building.added pictures - the old content is horrible and needs to be replaced
- Photo needs on
Sponsorship Optionsstill needs pictures for newsletter and grad pamphlet Involvement Opportunities
New nav division -- "Corporate Involvement" -- under this goes Recruitment&Emp, Involement Ops, Sponsorship Options, Naming, Gifting, Endowments, ECE Senior Des. Exisitng nav -- move Advisory Board up one, and have Contact Info follow it. Remove Faculty Research and Gifting Options (the latter is not corporate, but individuals and thus should remain on the Alumni side where it was originally). Our footer "Donation" link (http://www.ece2.ncsu.edu/corporate/gifting/) points to a page that seems to have fallen out of our Corporate sections nav. Need to add it back in whereever appropriate. ah... page might have been moved to Alumni? Well, we need to sort this out regardless. The last link on the nav is broken/missing.
- Dan the Great
Options that can be done after Release
Things we can add to the site after we go live.
- reset css, make valid
- update the CSS to include a print version that only prints the "content" section of the page?
- Add some Google Charts to Stats page?
- Groups and Labs page needs some loving. Bad layout.
- bigger logos? Might need us to redo since 50% are ones Margaret just made up...
- Should have some descriptive text about the group... couple sentences...
- Who do I contact for?
- Links to current and past dept reviews.
