We had a packed agenda at this month’s WPC session with presentations about EdWeb Group Administrators, two new content types for EdWeb, a report from Google Analytics training, the results of the recent EdWeb feature prioritisation survey and a guide to applying EdGEL to your web apps and blogs.

A few common questions come up at support clinic sessions about EdWeb features and functions, some of which are not always easily answered by guidance pages. This post answers those questions having to do with the behaviour of unpublished content, reusable content and events.
The University homepage has received a dramatic new look marking the completion of the website migration project to EdWeb. The EdWeb project has been delivered collaboratively by teams within Information Services, including IS Applications and with stakeholders from Schools, Colleges and business units around the University.
