With less than half a month remaining before the Global Health and Humanitarian Summit, the workload on the developmental end has been rapidly increasing. I spent all day today changing the homepage and the way that the main documents for the Summit are accessed. The home page now has a new promotional video created by our volunteers. I think that it gives a very good first impression of the Summit.
I have recently been notified that people have had trouble printing and downloading the documents for the Summit (the list of speakers, the quick program overview, the map, etc.). It appears that the company that I used to host the documents through introduced a fee for downloading... and they do not allow the user to print the document from their website (they told the users that they could print it after they downloaded for a cost). But very interestingly, they still allowed me to download and print without a cost. This was a very sneaky move. I decided to host the documents through the same company that hosts this website (they just recently allowed this option). Although there are pros and cons for both companies, I think that this will be the better option for the majority of people interested in the Summit. After all, if I was visiting Emory's campus for the first time I would definitely want to have a print-out of the map.
If there are any suggestions, comments, or questions about the website never hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
