Packaging Information – Keeping Content Disentangled from Presentation

Audience: Authors and Web Coordinators
Technical Level: Medium to ? (basic concepts will be of interest to all)

Web sites and collections of course materials present challenges in editing, updating and presenting information in the most highly usable forms. Information is most useful when it is categorized and indexed, but kept separate from the delivery mechanics.

This presentation will introduce the basic principles of content management and information presentation with immediately-usable examples of content placed on the web. Specific examples include the use of database-driven web pages, style sheets, XML systems (podcasts, newsfeeds, etc.) and content management systems.
