Handling news events on the weekends
********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
We are wondering how other universities handle processing news stories generated over the weekend. For example, if something “important” happened for your school on a Saturday, how does that news get written up and pushed to a web delivery?
Are you staffed in a special way for 7-day news coverage? Are most weekend stories really just “Monday stories” that get processed on the next workday? Do you have a news-centric chain of command for approving and releasing news on a weekend? Are there specific tools you use to help procure weekend content (for writing and or submitting news? Processing feeds automatically to swap out emerging news stories on your websites? Etc)
I appreciate any and all feedback you can offer J Thanks!
