The University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School recently asked BrightStarr, one of our education partners, to create a website that would help it promote its courses and research. The Business School wanted a rich and engaging website that would capture imagination and make it easier to communicate with stakeholders.
By building the site in Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007, not only does the Business School get a functionally rich internet site, the powerful collaboration and document management features in SharePoint support the complex information needs of administration and research workers.
BrightStarr are hosting a seminar in our offices in central London, in partnership with speakers from the Saïd Business School, Playgroup and from Microsoft (including my trusty colleague Dominic Watts, our Higher Education Business Manager) on 4 November 2009 to demonstrate how you can use SharePoint to build a great looking and functionally rich content managed website that will help you connect with students and staff, and support the work of research teams.
Judging by their funky website design, it should be an interesting and informative session, with real world examples of SharePoint as a content management system, and detail on what has been achieved at the University of Oxford's Saïd Business School.
The event starts at 10:00 and finishes at lunchtime, so it leaves plenty of time to travel up/down/across to London on the 4th.
