UKOLN RSC East Midlands Workshop - 28 June 2002

Brian Kelly facilitated a Benchmarking Web Sites forum which was organised by the East Midlands Regional Support Centre (RSC). The forum was held at Loughborough College on 28th June 2002.


This event will provide an opportunity for participants to benchmark their college (or other) Web site by making use of a range of Web-based tools. Delegates will compare their findings in order to try to identify examples of best practices and areas in which improvements may be made. Following the hands-on session there will be a presentation outlining some of the issues associated with this approach to benchmarking. The event will conclude by a group discussion of possible follow-up actions.

The forum will be complemented by use of an online forum, which will be available both before and after the event.
