Here is a brief overview of the project development items that we worked on/completed this past week:

  • New content was added to a few areas of our website
  • Dr. Kenan Casey continued work on our iPhone App - it's almost ready for launch...and looks sweet!
  • Work continued on our Alumni website migration plan
  • The Bell Tower site implementation is nearly complete
  • Our fhu.edu/connect page is receiving a few updates: content and functionality
  • Development plans for our backchannel app continues - our version one inclusions have been finalized

Next week, Lance will be back on campus and will begin work once again on the backchannel application. Look for a few updates on this in the near future. 

I found out this past week that our new web programmer, Michael Clark, will be starting on June 13. We all look forward to this new addition to IT Web Services.

At FHU, we strive to be innovators. We are always looking for ways to integrate the latest technologies into collaborative and engaging learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom.

Our development team will use this blog to periodically post about projects that we are working on. This summer will be a busy one, with several new and exciting things being developed and deployed on our campus.

Our goal with this blog is to document and communicate our efforts in development and technology integration.
