Web publishing software selected — Based
on recommendations by a product evaluation team made up of faculty,
staff and students, Dreamweaver MX has been selected as the high-end
Web publishing software for UW-Eau Claire. Effective August 2002,
ITM will support Dreamweaver MX by providing special pricing for
department purchase, installation in the general access computer
labs, training through CITI and BITS, documentation in the ITM
Online Help Collection, and consulting support through the CNS
Helpdesk. Support for Microsoft FrontPage also will continue.
An assessment of Web publishing needs,
tools and their integration will be performed annually. Initially,
Dreamweaver will be supported for three years. An annual assessment
will be conducted and plans will be adjusted accordingly.
If you have questions about Dreamweaver
or the selection process, contact Kathy
