The University of South Carolina is changing the rules for official web pages through the Web Redesign and Redevelopment project. I will attempt to keep up with these changes at Web Site - USC At this time, the USC web project is apparently only going to be used for sites that are related to the marketing of programs. There are many pages on the current College of Education site that are very important, but don't serve as a tool for marketing. The COE may need to come up with another system for projects, services, and other items that don't fit into the new system, such as professional/personal pages that many faculty members and instructors have made that they use to share information about their teaching, research and service projects. It is unclear at this time if the Support Services site or the site for the Center of Excellence in Technology for Special Education will be able to use the new USC content management system. I started a page for Web Sites - COE that may be needed if a second system really does have to be established.
