2021 IWP updates

Extension & Delivery > Virtual Delivery > Integrated Web Platform > Updates

Action items

  1. Register your web sites for conversion to the IWP platform
    (Note: A site is what shows up in your portal. The sub pages are included automatically.)

    Why do this? Registering helps know which sites are active and so makes sure they are included in the IWP. There are hundreds of sites with little or no activity that don't need to move. 

    Note: The development team is currently focused on working with a "pilot" group of content owners to build out the platform, so the process of migrating your registered content will not begin immediately.

  2. On your sites, remove unwanted files and/or delete or hide pages not wanted.

    Why do this? Let's include the "best" credible relevant educational content.

  3. Update site administrators. Use the  SiteBuilder administration
    site-builder admin
    area (Picture at right). Remove separated personnel. Add anyone not currently listed who would like to be part of the migration conversation.

    Why do this? This will help with communication to manage migration of sites or content.

  4. Attend weekly IWP office hours -- Zoom information will be sent to you after you register your site (step 1, above).

 

Information

  1. What content will be included in the late July launch (Phase 1 IWP)?
    The launch is scheduled to include: the UC ANR home page, subject-matter pages, templated county sites, a subset of county-based advisor content, news content from Strategic Communications, online publications from the UC ANR Publications catalog, the development services site, and more. The IWP "content hub" will launch with thousands of educational articles, fact sheets, etc.; the content migration process will continue after launch.

If you haven’t heard from the IWP core team, your content will not move into the IWP until after July.

  1. What about SiteBuilder and my content?

The SiteBuilder platform is outdated and will be retired after the full migration to the IWP is complete. Your content will remain in SiteBuilder until it is migrated. You will be informed well ahead of time about transfer to the improved platform.

1. The IWP team is currently working with a group of content owners on a pilot basis to build out the IWP and develop the systems and processes to support systematic content migration from SiteBuilder.
 
2. Content migration is currently proceeding on a case-by-case basis. If you haven't heard from the IWP core team, you content will not move into the IWP until after July. You will be informed well ahead of time about transfer to the new platform.
 
3. Content transfer will be supported by automation tools. Content migration does not mean rebuilding your site from scratch, but in most cases there will be some manual work for site owners, such as reviewing and tagging content.
 

4. Your content will remain in SiteBuilder until it is migrated. The outdated SiteBuilder platform will be retired after the migration to the IWP is complete.

Notes

  1. Much content transfer will be automated. Content migration is NOT rebuilding your site from scratch, but in most cases there will be some manual work for site owners. 
  2. The content tagging process will require some review and input from content owners. The team is investigating tools to automate the tagging process.
