Strategic Initiative Brief: Strategic themes, IWP

Unify-Communicate-Advocate

Example of what UC ANR's new website will look like when the web interface platform is launched.

The Strategic Initiatives offer a home for strategic thought - drawing on members of the wider UC ANR community and beyond to 1) help people connect and 2) to help them identify and address issues of current and emerging importance. 

1. Strategic Themes

Visit the Strategic Themes page to explore the growing number of 2-pager concept notes. These concept notes highlight existing and emerging opportunities and provide common sets of ideas for meeting those needs.  

Check out the new draft on Building community resilience. Feedback welcome.

2. Reach - The Integrated Web Platform

We continue to look for ways to help people ensure the Integrated Web Platform (IWP) will be successful. The IWP will help make our educational information more discoverable - adding value to work being done.  

IWP action items: Please make sure your website owners to do three things:

1. Register their websites at https://ucanr.edu/portal/iwp_content_registration.cfm

2. Remove unwanted files and delete or hide unwanted pages.

3. Update administrators for each website, using the SiteBuilder administration area to remove separated personnel and add anyone who would like to be part of the migration conversation for the site. 

What will the new interface look like? Check it out here. Feedback welcome. Learn more about the IWP project here.

Are you ready for the IWP?

The IWP, otherwise known as the Integrated Web Platform project, will begin replacing the current ANR website ucanr.edu in July in an effort to help make UC ANR's educational content more accessible to the people of California.

To prepare for conversion to the IWP platform, we need all ANR website owners to do three things:

1. Register their websites at https://ucanr.edu/portal/iwp_content_registration.cfm.

2. Remove unwanted files and delete or hide unwanted pages.

3. Update administrators for each website, using the SiteBuilder administration area to remove separated personnel and add anyone who would like to be part of the migration conversation for the site.

UC ANR's new website will look something like this.

The IWP will provide a more current website ecosystem, which will help make content easier to find and bring more consistency in user experience and visual design across our websites. The current system presents challenges of co-mingling of internal and external content (human resources, development, and internal communications) which the IWP also aims to solve in later phases.

Successful implementation of the IWP will provide audiences with timely, user-friendly access to the information they need.

Selected sites associated with members of steering committees and some county sites will be transferred onto this new platform by the end of July 1.

If you haven't heard from the IWP core team, your content will move into the IWP after July. Once the full migration to the IWP is complete, the SiteBuilder platform will be retired. (No need to worry - The team will be in touch well before any changes are made.)

More information and FAQs can be found at https://ucanr.edu/sites/Professional_Development/Integrated_Web_Platform. Updates are posted at https://ucanr.edu/sites/Professional_Development/Updates. If you have any questions or concerns related to IWP, please feel free to contact the IWP team at iwp@ucanr.edu.
