I love making information from one part of the school visible to the entire institution. Today, our web site editor and I took over 400 professional photos shot for the new viewbook and posted them into our intranet. We have now made these photos, which we own, available to the entire faculty and staff for use in other publications. Brilliant. I feel the same way about pulling data from one web site to another or from our school information system into our intranet web site. There is so much going on in an institution of this size, but it takes work to make the work of one department useful to others.
The other piece of good news: Gallery’s upload applet (running within Moodle) successfully imported over 400 photos in one big load. We went to lunch while it ran!
