Team # 503 -- WebEvent Calendars at Penn State
Student Affairs

February 2002

Objective

Penn State's Web Strategies Team has selected "WebEvent" as the software product that will be used to create a new University-wide events calendar. In November, 2001, the Web Strategies Team purchased a site license for 400 calendars. Using this software, staff at Penn State can enter calendar events into a database and display those events in multiple calendar locations. Departmental and college events calendars can also be aggregated into Penn State's University-wide calendar and into Penn State's Portal. Many of Penn State's largest event planning offices are already using WebEvent and other offices are invited to request a calendar account and start adding their events.

Challenge: Provide a user-friendly web calendar to all Penn State departments.

Methodology: In November 2001, the Web Strategy Team purchased a site license for 400 calendars.
