> Dear .AC.UK Web Managers, Marketers and Developers,
> JISC would like to invite you to consider bidding for participation in a community of projects that will advance your .AC.UK websites to make them more appealing to students. These projects will innovate around a product currently under development that advances the use of the 'all powerful link'. Called the "JISCLINKU" Toolkit, projects will beta test and advance this Toolkit to make it ready for the rest of the sector's use come the start of the next Academic year 12/13 (yes that's right, attracting new fee+ paying students!).
> Bids are due on the 21st of November at Noon, successful projects would be expected to start in as part of the community work in February 2012.
> The official call is available on the JISC website, however a shortened (un-official) version is at the link below so you can easily get an overview of what will be expected of prospective projects:
> If there are further questions, ideas or intentions for how you can be part of this innovative community of project please do contact David F. Flanders (JISC Programme Manager), d.fland...@jisc.ac.uk / mob: 07891 50 1194 / skype: david.flanders
