OpenCUNY Fall 2015 Welcome; Our New Homepage & Activity Page
We at OpenCUNY would like to welcome you to the Fall 2015 semester, and we look forward to what you will create on our platform this academic year. As you’ll see on slides projected around The Graduate Center featuring current students and alums talking about what they love about OpenCUNY, OpenCUNY supports a diverse, engaged community cognizant of the challenges and opportunities of evolving digital culture.
This summer, we, the OpenCUNY Coordinators, have been hard at work to develop OpenCUNY to better serve the needs of our community. In consultation with the elected OpenCUNY Board, we redesigned our homepage and the activity page that collects together and transmits public OpenCUNY posts to Twitter and Facebook. As part of our homepage redesign, we now have an image slider that features active sites across OpenCUNY. If you’re interested in having us feature your site, fill out this short form (linked also in our sidebar).
Remember, whether this is your first or last semester, OpenCUNY supports you. We’re open to both online consultations and in-person meetings; you can sign up for both of these through our list of contact forms. If you’re new here, you can join OpenCUNY and then access our Starter Kit on OpenCUNY.info, a repository of informational, how-to posts. Our newest OpenCUNY.info post, “How to Choose a Theme: 5 Tips,” will be of interest to those just starting off and those looking to redesign or think more about their site design. If you’re getting ready to graduate, consult this post about how OpenCUNY continues to encourage your research as an alum.
