The Collegis web editor training went well and potential problems have been identified and corrected.  Approximately twenty-three trained web editors will be given the opportunity to test the "enhanced web editor" on their department web pages.  Remaining participants of the web editor workshops will join in once the initial "bugs" have been worked out.  Additional training will be available for other interested faculty and staff on campus, in an ongoing training process.

Links to the old web server will be maintained for an extended period.  This allows for the migration of pages to the new web server.

Avoid Virus "Panic Attack"
We are all concerned about getting a computer virus. For your campus computer, know that most virus are screened out by our campus network. If you log onto the network, your anti-virus software is updated. There is not much likelihood you will get a virus on campus if you follow commonsense. You have a greater likelihood of getting false messages warning you about a virus.
