Demonstration: Your Colleagues - 2

From American Presidents to Julia Child's Kitchen to the Space Race, Smithsonian web sites inspire educators and students alike. With the redesign of the Smithsonian Education Portal, http://educate.si.edu, the Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies has radically changed how content, classroom tools and Smithsonian lesson plans are accessed and used. In this demonstration, learn how a small publications staff has developed and managed a new education portal that serves educators, students and families through home page versioning enabled by enterprise content management software and a dynamic SQL database. This innovative user-type based architecture and accompanying workflow exemplifies how to maximize content and outreach.
