This presentation took place at the annual UCDA Design Conference on October 16, 2011 in Phoeniz, AZ.

Many institutions have 'gone digital' with their alumni magazines by posting simple PDF versions or by paying third-party vendors to create Flash page-flip versions. This session will demonstrate how Missouri State University designed and built a new magazine website using a customized Wordpress theme with only a few staff members and student workers. The presentation will cover the challenges of transitioning from print to web, the design and implementation process, social media integration and interactivity with readers.
