Join Acquia, and Harvard’s Institute of Quantitative Social Science as we present Open Scholar, a Drupal solution for higher education.

Built by faculty members at Harvard University’s Institute of Quantitative Social Science, Open Scholar is a free, pre-configured, and fully customizable solution that enables universities and colleges to deploy turnkey websites for professors, researches and students. In seconds, faculty members can create their own social website to publish research, share blog posts, follow and track projects, and interact with their community. With the click of a button researchers can create collaboration websites to work on projects, attract grant funding and share results in an open environment for peer review.

Partnered with Harvard University’s Institute of Quantitative Social Science, we invite you to register to learn more and how Acquia can help your institution deploy Open Scholar tomorrow. No additional resources needed!

Attendees will:

* Watch a demonstration of the Open Scholar application
* Learn how to speed deployment of microsites for faculty members, projects, and departments
* Understand how Open Scholar will help universities reduce costs while giving faculty fully functional social websites
* Hear how Acquia’s fully managed solutions for higher education can simplify Open Scholar deployment and management

This webinar is intended for higher educational institutions looking for an easier way to deploy social publishing websites that facilitate faculty engagement, promote research, and deploy the next generation of social networking and website publishing on campus.
