The Canisius College workflow: MU WordPress, Divi and MailChimp

Date: Friday, July 14, 2017
Time: 9:30 - 10:15 am (EDT) (UTC-04:00)
Location: Room 1028
Format: General Lecture Session

Session description

Not only do campus individuals need help communicating to the outside world, they also need help communicating internally. WordPress has helped Canisius College immensely. It is being used in a variety of ways and by a variety of individuals across the institution.

This effort is supported by the Center for Online Learning and Innovation (COLI), which endorses the use of Divi, a flexible, premium theme. Additionally, COLI helps offices integrate MailChimp to broadcast campus communication via email.

This session will share the many ways our campus is using WordPress and will show examples of those efforts. Along with receiving ideas to bring back to their own campuses, participants will also receive links to a blogging kit, a newsletter kit and a content calendar.
