iFactory delivered this webinar on April 17th as part of our iFactoryEd webinar series.

Universities often have content, such as research databases, which requires a lot of information to be presented at once. This can often be difficult to attractively display, and allow for easy search and discovery.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss options for displaying complex content types, and set up some Views to provide lists for filtering and browsing. We’ll also show how a site-wide tagging vocabulary can help the site to automatically push content—making users aware of the wealth of resources you have available.

Topics covered:

> Customizing display of complex content types, including using Javascript blinds to show/hide information
> Setting up a variety of views for different ways to list, filter and sort content
> Tagging to enable highlighting content which otherwise does not get enough attention

The presenter was Lisa Sawin, Solutions Architect for iFactory. This was part 2 of a 3 part series.
