As one of higher education?s most well-known instructional resources, MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resources for Learning and Online Teaching) needed a way for nontechnical, academic experts to post information to the Web quickly--without waiting for IT support. Sorel Reisman, MERLOT?s managing director of strategic development, saw Macromedia?s Contribute software as a technical solution to the bottleneck. MERLOT could create a series of Internet portals to build online communities. Using Contribute 3, faculty and staff could modify or update portal content in a controlled, template-based workflow while preserving Web site integrity.
