We’re trying something new: Making Connections: A Humanities Commons Twitter Conference. Propose a presentation by May 29th [update: deadline extended to June 3rd], and mark your calendar to follow along on July 18th. Wondering what a Twitter conference looks like? Find more information, including the form to submit your 280-character proposal, on the conference site.
We’ve introduced some new options to customize a group’s interface. Group admins now have the option to hide features that aren’t relevant to the group in Manage → Settings.
In addition, group admins can change the default landing page for their group from “Activity,” if they wish.
For instance, if a group wants a place to have discussion and collect syllabi and teaching materials deposited in CORE, the group admin might hide Events, Docs, and Files and make “Discussion” the landing page.
Group admins will still see the hidden menu items, greyed out. A group member who is not an admin will not see the greyed out items.
