Intellectual Property Institute Launches the National CyberEducation Project
“The University of Richmond Intellectual Property Institute announces the launch of the National CyberEducation Project, an interdisciplinary, grass-roots effort to engage students, faculty, and administrators on college campuses in discussion of contemporary intellectual property issues. Because debates over the intellectual property issues that arise in the digital age often appear to reflect a new generation gap, the Project focuses on educational efforts that work to bridge that gap. It will produce conferences, articles, blogs, education kits, and other student-oriented, campus-centric programs and materials.“
Sounds like they could use CALI Author to create some materials that could be accessed over the web by anyone.

Specifically, Sitemaps will direct Google’s Web crawlers to content that has been changed or added, removing the need for Google to spider an entire site. Sitemap files are based on XML and contain a number of parameters to aid in the search indexing process.“
