Greetings from the LLNE Technology Committee
The duties of the LLNE Technology Committee include working with LLNE committees to find and implement technology solutions, maintaining and developing the LLNE.org website, and supporting the LLNE listservs. The LLNE Technology Committee Co-Chairs, Artie & Alex are available to assist committees with technology solutions. Currently LLNE has access to many technology products which committees can utilize. Some of these are mentioned below.
Our listserv, mail-list.com allows us to have multiple listservs going at the same time. We currently have a general listserv and an executive board listserv. Does your committee need its own listserv? Let us know and we will set it up.
Does your committee need to post LLNE related video content? LLNE has a Vimeo account which we use for video hosting. Please contact us for more information.
WordPress is one of the most common tools used for building websites. Our website is built on WordPress and it is both easy enough to use for those unfamiliar with web design and robust enough for those well versed in HTML. WordPress also has thousands of plug-ins which add many different features to the website. Plug-ins we currently use include:
- Akismet Anti-Spam
- Google Analytics
- Yoast SEO
Memberpress is a handy tool which does quite a few things. We originally obtained this WordPress plug-in to establish members-only access for certain pages, but many of its other features have provend useful. Here are some of the features:
- Making certain parts of the website available only to logged-in LLNE members.
- Collecting new member data.
- Keeping track of and collecting (thru PayPal) membership dues.
Does your committee need to post content only available to members? We can set up specific content so it can only be viewed by members logged into llne.org.
Signups for LLNE events are often handled using JotForm. JotForm can collect registration information and payments. If you are working on an upcoming LLNE event, contact us about using JotForm.
SurveyMonkey is used for, you guessed it, creating surveys. Do you need to create a survey for LLNE purposes? Contact us and we can help get you started.
