Segue [Content Management System]
Segue is an online content management system designed for the easy creation of web sites for teaching, learning, research and project collaborations. It only takes a matter of a few minutes to create and setup a website for your audience. Segue is used for a lot of classes and students look there for course syllabi, assignments, readings and discussions pertaining to their classes. It can be used as a "bare minimum" to post office hours and syllabi, or it can be used for so much more ranging from journaling/reflections/discussions, embedded media source for audio, YouTube, images and so on.
How Segue Works for Class Sites
- Prior to each semester, courses are automatically entered into Segue and appear on the faculty's Segue home page. Approximate timelines for this automatic course entry is: for the Fall semester at the end of July; Spring semester at the end of November; May and June terms at the end of April. An email notice is sent to all faculty when the upcoming semester classes have been entered.
- Once the courses are loaded, faculty can begin creating their classroom sites
- The rosters for each class are loaded into Segue about a week (or so) before the semester begins. Early every morning, the rosters are refreshed to reflect the previous 24-hours' adds and drops.
Segue can also be used for other non-class related needs - Capstone project and research notes and tracking, presentation tool, department shared resource site, collaboration content tool for internal and external colleagues and so on. To request a non-class site, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your needs and any questions you may have.
