12/9/2005: Invitation for NGRG

Postby rcrisler1 » Fri Dec 09, 2005 5:52 pm

This email was sent on Dec. 9, 2005 to a group of 13 UNL web developers:



As you may know from ongoing discussions within the Web Developer Network and other forums, web developers from across UNL are being asked to join in a process to redevelop and redesign the UNL site templates for implementation in Summer 2006.

You are one of a group of 13 UNL web developers that are being asked to participate as the core Next-Generation Redevelopment Group.

We will be working in cooperation with the ad hoc Next Generation Web Committee. To assure cooperation and communication with that group, the chair of the NGWC, Brian Moore, will be a member of the Redevelopment Group, while I will be a member of the NGWC.

At first, our work will follow that of the NGWC. The NGWC's charge is twofold:
1) Develop a white paper/strategic plan (3 to 5 year perspective) for UNLÕs web presence in all categories and
2) provide recommendations for the immediate redevelopment of what currently exists (this work carried out by the NGRG)

The NGWC expects to complete a specification list of required UNL site elements by the end of January, 2006. The NGRG will then (early February 2006) commence work in earnest, beginning with the creation of an array of prototype designs that incorporate the identified specifications. We will then work through a process, which will include the use of focus groups representing various constituencies, to distill the prototypes into one base design, from which we'll build various derivative templates (popup, document, etc.). That work must be completed by early summer in order to dedicate the bulk of the summer months to moving content into the new design. We anticipate going live with the new UNL web presence in the week prior to the beginning of First Semester 2006-2007.

More information will be forthcoming. We'll have a light discussion after next Tuesday's Web Developer Network Group meeting (Dec. 13, 2pm, 107 Arch Hall), and will meet formally in January to plan the work process that will ramp up in February.

Please reply to this email to indicate your interest and availability to be part of the Next-Generation web redevelopment process at UNL. This represents a commitment to attend all scheduled meetings and/or workshops, and to participate in the development and design process. If your schedule does not permit you to be a part of this process, please nominate a web developer that may be able to represent your interests.
