2011 FIRST Robotics Conference session on Websites

I have been a website evaluator and website evaluator advisor for several Regionals now for several years… Each year I come across some FIRST team websites that could be greatly improved if the team took some time to evaluate the content they are providing. So I submitted a conference proposal which was accepted, and will be presenting “What’s Your Message? Tips for Creating a Great FIRST Team Website” on Thursday, April 28, 2011 at 3pm at the 2011 FIRST Robotics Conference.

“Does your FIRST team have a website? Have you thought about who your audience is, what your message is, and how you are communicating it? This session will offer suggestions for how to improve your team’s website content - what to include and what to avoid. This is not a discussion of technical website development, but a session for website content.”

I hope you’ll join me in St. Louis! Click here for more information:

Sounds interesting… I will try and attend!

I’m SO glad someone is finally doing this!
Websites are so often overlooked in FIRST, and they’re one of the easiest awards to win (I mean, c’mon, the score sheet is in the manual!)

Lenny will be disappointed that he’s missing it, but I will definitely check it out!

Oh, oh, now the pressure is on! :slight_smile:

Any possibility of getting a copy of your presentation after the championship. We are looking to improve our content for next year.

Can you post a copy of your presentation when you get home from the championship? We are looking to make changes to our website next year. We would appreciate any help you might be able to provide.
