The development environment installation of CommonSpot was completed on October 27, 2010. Web Services is currently in the process of establishing the base template along with the academic department template, interior page templates, and style sheets.

This initial implementation will take time as we learn the system and complete all necessary setup tasks. We can then proceed with the live production environment installation. We hope to have our first CommonSpot site, Urban & Regional Studies, go live over winter break.

As we complete this first site, we are preparing a Migration Guide which can be used by future sites to help with the transition to CommonSpot. Training will be given at first on a site-by-site basis as each goes live. After a few successful site launches, we plan to conduct training in a more formal fashion. Stay tuned!
