  • Tell us what you think! UMBC Sites user survey

    Survey open now through October 31

    October 10, 2019 2:41 PM
    Hello Sites Users,

    We are in the process of planning Sites updates and future training workshops and would love to hear from you!

    To help us better understand our Sites users and their needs, please take a moment to fill out our brief survey on the current Sites platform. Your feedback will be invaluable in guiding us as we update the platform and adapt our trainings to help you accomplish your Sites goals. The survey should take about five minutes to complete and will be available until October 31.


    We are thrilled to see the overwhelming interest by the UMBC community in receiving Sites training. At this point, all upcoming workshops are currently full. In lieu of a wait list, we recommend you check our myUMBC group frequently ahead of the workshops, in the event openings become available. If you have a specific issue with Sites, you can make a comment here or email Roland King, rking@umbc.edu or Bryan Barnes, jbryan@umbc.edu.

    We plan to add many more trainings in the future and will be updating our Sites guides and FAQs following survey feedback.

    Thank you!
