Update on IFAS T4 Conversion

Update  on IFAS  T4  Conversion

As you know,  training  has been offered  by UFIT  for the T4 conversion.  You are most welcome and encouraged to enroll in this training now.

But  I want to assure  web managers  across UF/IFAS  that IFAS Communications is working with UFIT  to ensure that additional training sessions also  be available  for IFAS web managers  closer to the time that they  will actually  be converting their website.  Many  IFAS  sites will not be  converted until  later this fall, so  you will not be able to  apply this training  immediately if you take the training  as  soon as it is available from UF.  We are inquiring as to  future  training dates  so you can  plan  appropriately. But   you might want to take the training  now to introduce  yourself to T4 AND take the training again closer to the time your website will be converted.

Also,  UF/IFAS Extension sites will not be  converting  until early 2015  at the earliest  so we are planning on  providing additional  T4 training  closer to the actual date of  converting.

Reminder:  An update meeting about the IFAS  conversion to T4  is planned for  August 14   at 9:00 a.m. to  11:00 a.m. [or whenever we  complete the  q and a session]  at the Straughn  Professional Development Center.  If you  have specific questions that  you  would like answered  during this meeting  please email them to the   IFAS web tem at webteam@ifas.ufl.edu.

We will provide a summary  of the meeting to  our colleagues  across the state.

 

Thank you

TERMINALFOUR – Web Content Management System Training

Work is underway to transition university websites into TERMINALFOUR , UF’s new Web Content Management System.

UFIT is offering two training courses, one for Webmasters (highly technical end-users) and one for IT and Administrative Staff (less technical  end-users).  Anyone wishing to use the new system is required to complete a training course before gaining access to TERMINALFOUR.   Registration for training is now open, with courses available in mid-August.  To register for either course, visit:  http://webservices.it.ufl.edu/contact/terminalfour-enrollment.

UF Web Services has posted a TERMINALFOUR FAQ.  If you have questions about training enrollment, please email the Web Services group.
