All pages that are created using the new UMContent (Stellent) content management system use source ordered semantic markup that is accessible and flexible. We also include a specific print style sheet for each page (see example from Compleat Scholar and use Print Preview in your browser) which removes unneeded images, adds a print header image, and (in Firefox) prints out URLs from all links.

Several CCE programs publish audio recordings of their scheduled events. These MP3 recordings are linked on the website as well as being collected into an XML feed that is read by iTunes.
Examples of these feeds are those for Great Conversations and for Headliners. Another program which rebroadcasts audio and video recording is the Strategic Leadership Insights series. Eventually these recordings will become part of the University of Minnesota's iTunesU collection (once that is formally launched).
Adobe Connect (formerly Macromedia Breeze) is software used to create information and general presentations, online training materials, web conferencing, learning modules, and user desktop sharing. The product is entirely Adobe Flash based. All meeting workspaces are organized into 'pods'; with each pod performing a specific role (i.e. chat, whiteboard, note, etc.).
New pages in CCE use layouts built with only CSS positioning. We created this CSS Positioning Guide in order to explain the basic structure of this semantic ordering of pages.
This video player is populated using an RSS feed from CLA's MediaMill. The playlist, thumbnails, video content, and metadata is loaded at runtime and displayed using the Flash player. The MP4 format is used to enable compatability with iTunes. NOTE: currently MP4 playback is broken in IE7.
Media Mill is a project launched by the CLA Office of Information Technology (CLA-OIT) to archive and distribute video and audio content.
The prototype multiplayer was developed by the CCE New Media Group
