Welcome to Geddes 4.0

May 16th, 2011

Today we launched a new version of the Geddes website. We hope you find it easier to navigate and enjoy having a cleaner page layout. Almost everything that was here before still is, just perhaps in a different place. Take a moment to look around and if you can’t find anything then contact us using the contact link on the bottom of the page.

There are a few things missing. The slide libraries are gone, but no one used them based on our research. We had hundreds of music CDs streaming through the website to the Geddes Language Centers computers only. You can still see the lists of music in our music collection from anywhere, but with the exception of the Music Appreciation material, you’ll need to come to the lab and launch iTunes to continue to enjoy the streaming music.

If you are an instructor and had a course website here before May 16th, it is no longer online. We can put it back, but please give us a week or so to do so so that it can be formatted into the new layout.

Finally, some credit. Emily Heffernan, our lab manager, took most of the photographs on the website. The archival images in the history section are from BU photo services. The design is a template created for departments by BU Marketing. Thanks to Ron at IS&T for his help as well.

Enjoy!
