One of the questions we get asked the most is, "When is my college's new web site going to be ready?" There are two answers to that question. First, every college has been assigned to an implementation group by KCTCS leadership, and those groups are scheduled for new web sites over the next 12-18 months. Second, every college is going to have a home on thePoint (the System-wide employee intranet) as well.
That sounds like you're going to have two web sites, right? Well, yes and no. Lots of the content on our public web sites right now is really geared toward employees only. Part of the purpose of thePoint is to get that employee information off of our public web sites and into a place just for us. While there won't really be separate college sites on thePoint right out of the gate, there will be college-specific content at the outset, with something more like college sites coming in probably 3 months or so after launch.
That leaves all the content on our public web sites. As I said, every college is on the schedule for implementation of their new public web site in the coming months. The timing for your new site depends on where you are. We're starting with West Kentucky, Southeast Kentucky, and Madisonville in March 2009. Additional groups of three will follow 3-4 months apart as we complete the previous implementations. To find out exactly where your college sits in the implementation order, contact your local Web Services staff. They'll have the latest projected dates.
