  2. 2. Why Drupal? • Open source content management system • Offers many community-building features: blogs, mapping, reviews, comments, “tracking” • Highly extensible -- many available modules to extend functionality “out-of-the-box” • Multiple levels of user interaction / user permissions • Secure, stable, supported by large community
  3. 3. Ideas on using the Web • Use existing tools • Understand how to use your website to support your organization’s goals: + What do you want to accomplish? + What is your objective? + How will you measure your success? • Design - change the way your content displays • Functionality - mix and match from pre-built tools
