Driving Ms. Data: Creating Data-Driven Possibilities
Technology & Learning, v25 n7 p42 Feb 2005
This article describes how driven Web sites help schools and districts maximize their IT resources by making online content more "self-service" for users. It shows how to set up the capacity to create data-driven sites. By definition, a data-driven Web site is one in which the content comes from some back-end data source, such as a database, and is then formatted and presented to the user by the Web server. While the technology advances and users' expectations increase, it is likely that there have been no corresponding increases in human resources and technical staff to make all this happen. So, how does one reconcile the need for data-driven Web sites with the reality of current infrastructure? This article will provide a brief run-through of some strategies for giving staff and users what they need and expect.
