Weekly Web Updates – April 3, 2017

The embed code on MiddMedia no longer includes a Flash player option. We will be retiring the Adobe Flash Media Server and moving to strictly HTML5 video, which works on all modern browsers, mobile browsers, and Internet Explorer 9+.


Fixes and Tweaks

  • The event content type on the Middlebury Drupal site now has an “anchor” field allowing direct links to events when they are shown in a list view.
  • Several minor updates to the inquiry form on the Language Schools site, including addition of fields for collecting current university and degree sought.

Ongoing Work

  • Creating a new website for the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
  • Building out the configuration of our  CAS servers in Chef, which is a configuration management system. We have already completed this work for our Drupal, WordPress, MediaWiki, GO, Omeka, and the Course Catalog services.
  • Upgrading the Drupal sites for the Davis programs, Dining Menus, and Museum of Art to Drupal 8.
  • Integrating Panopto (streaming videos) and Canvas (LMS).
