A very quick Life Idea this week but one that I hope will be useful for many of you.
We've looked at different ways of using online calendars in previous Life Ideas, but sometimes there are dates that you just want to make sure everyone knows about. Highlighting these on your homepage means that everyone will see them - and also makes it easy for you to remember to review and update which events you particularly want to ensure are heavily promoted.
In it's simplest form, this idea just involves dedicating a content cell to key dates, but for more important events - such as major school anniversaries - you could also add links to dedicated pages promoting the event in greater details, perhaps students could be involved in creating content for such a page?
