This document gives the proposal for the half-day session on Intranets and Extranets.
The session attracted 24 participants.
Report Back now available.
Workshop Facilitator: James Currall (Glasgow)
Participants will find it useful to have read Glasgow University's document entitled An Intranet: a discussion document.
The workshop session will require a PC cluster and a networked PC with Powerpoint and a web browser with a projection device and an OHP for use by the speakers. Flipcharts will be needed for the discussion groups. The workshop session should be based in a PC cluster for the hands-on session.
Note that it is not possible to install additional software in the cluster.
See the summary of the Intranet thread on the lis-link Mailbase list.
