About Ian McBride

I'm a web developer at Middlebury.

WRMC added to the Portal and Mobile site

You can now listen to WRMC 91.1 FM on the go, anywhere in the world on your mobile device and computers. Both the High Quality (192k) and Low Quality (96k) streams are available by clicking on the WRMC logo on the mobile dashboard or hovering over the icons at the top of the portal to see the WRMC option which appears in the second row. Remember, you can use the portal customization features to move it up in the list if you want to make it even easier to find.

Digital Lecture Archive now available in MiddLab

All 316 records from the Digital Lecture Archive are now available for browsing in MiddLab where they can be browsed with the subject tags assigned to them, commented on, and shared with others using the social media links in MiddLab. As new recordings are adding to the archive, they’ll be automatically added to MiddLab, making this a great way to find new content.

One of the original goals of MiddLab was to increase the visibility of Middlebury’s many academic projects and resources that would otherwise be buried within the site by giving them a central site accessible from the main site header. Adding the Digital Lecture Archive is just one of many such planned additions to MiddLab.

If you have other suggestions, please let me know and remember that it’s easier than ever before to tell the world about your research through MiddLab.

You can also follow MiddLab on Facebook and Twitter.

Tell the world about your research with MiddLab: Now easier than ever!

MiddLab is a section of our website that helps push information about scholarly and service work up to the top. We know that there are a lot of great academic resources built by people at Middlebury and many ongoing projects and activities that not everyone hears about or gets to see. The purpose of MiddLab is to:

  • Tell people about this great work.
  • See how it all ties together.
  • Let people contribute to the discussion.

Any student, faculty or staff member at Middlebury and MIIS can log in to MiddLab and write up a post about the project work or research in which they’re engaged. I’ve just made a change that will make doing this much easier. When you add a new post to MiddLab, it will give you a simple template to fill out.

Just fill in each section with information about your work….

And it will show up on the site for everyone to see. Working in MiddLab is now as easier as creating any other blog post on our WordPress site. I still recommend adding tags, categories and a location to your post so that people can see how it relates to work in other areas.

Of course, I’m still more than happy to work with you to get started and can be contacted at
