Posted by Karen Fisher, Student Affairs Technology Services, UCSD. IT staff from four UC campuses have been selected to present at the HighEdWeb West regional conference in Riverside on Friday, June 10.

  • UC Irvine’s Brian Payne and Su Wang will share lessons learned after transitioning from a home-built learning management system to one hosted by Canvas.
  • UC Riverside’s Robert Bottomley and Ross French will reveal how UCR overhauled its online newsroom back-end, front-end, and database, rethinking the traditional newsroom concept.
  • Deborah Osae-Oppong of UC San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering will speak about social media best practices and the Jacobs’ School’s popular #ILookLikeAnEngineer campaign.
  • UC Santa Barbara’s Logan Franken will discuss using open-source frameworks, tools, libraries and APIs in higher-education application systems.

The HighEdWeb Association is a national organization of web professionals working at institutions of higher education (developers, designers, site managers, and marketing / communications staff).
