Technology and Ministry

I spent the day bringing up a Microsoft Sharepoint Services web server specifically for our students' use. I then began training our Director of Student Affairs to create simple web applications with it.

I've done Sharepoint work for several years, starting with the Digital Dashboard Resource Kit (back when wheels were square, and you had to turn a crank to get your car started.).

So now we're able to quickly communicate with our students through an online calendar, announcements and picture/document libraries. We'll also have a few custom workflow applications to eliminate a big chunk of paperwork and streamline daily interactions with our students.

So today was like putting on a nice old pair of blue jeans. I was, for a moment, back in my familiar old IT consulting world.

Tomorrow it's back to syllabus development, theological concerns and in general doing my best to win the world.
