Enabling More Web Publishing at ED.gov

Aligned to goals:
  • 2.1: Provide more insight into the agency's decision-making process.
  • 4.1: Encourage openness and communication about effectiveness within the Department.
  • 4.2: Enhance Departmental internal collaboration activities.

Another reason for choosing the recently selected open- source Web publishing technology as the ED.gov Web platform is that it provides streamlined methods for our offices to publish online content. Shortly after this plan is published, we will provide a new content management system that makes it easier to keep office Web pages updated with current information and developments and that includes RSS feeds. The goal is to encourage an open, continuously updated information hub powered by the offices that make up our Department. This ability creates a stronger connection between our employees and the stakeholders that rely on us.
