For those of you who missed the TechAtlas 2.3 new features overview webcast this past Wednesday, we have archived a video (and audio!) recording of the presentation on WebJunction’s TechAtlas Online Learning Materials page. On that same page, you’ll find a link to a brief document listing the new TechAtlas features that we reviewed during the webcast.
Thanks for everyone who did participate in the webcast – we received many good questions and comments from the participants, and we appreciate it!

Since the latest update to the TechAtlas software included several new features, we’ve posted a handy 3-page “cheat sheet” to WebJunction. This brief article provides a list of the major areas of enhancement in the latest version of TechAtlas, and also provides some helpful pointers on specific functions to check out within each of the new tools.

Due to some technical problems last week, we had to re-schedule the TechAtlas version 2.3 new features overview webcast originally scheduled for November 22.
Now that our technical issues are resolved, we’ll hold the (free) webcast this Wednesday, November 29 beginning at 1 pm Eastern time (10 am Pacific). The webcast will be one hour in duration.
If you would like to participate in this webcast, please register online since space is limited. We hope you can join us!

Well, not the Thunderbirds exactly, but TechAtlas version 2.3 did launch successfully this past Friday. The upgrade process went smoothly, and everything seems to be working great.
A lot of work went into this latest update to the TechAtlas software, and we especially want to thank those TechAtlas users who provided suggestions and feedback on how we can improve these tools. We weren’t able to implement all of the good suggestions in this latest update, but WebJunction has big plans for additional work on TechAtlas over the next few years – watch this space for more details (coming soon)!

Just a reminder that the TechAtlas software upgrade to version 2.3 will begin this evening, starting around 4:30 p.m. Pacific time. Once the software update is completed, you will notice some new functions in TechAtlas, as well as some functions that have been moved to make the organization of the tool a little more logical.
While we don’t anticipate any problems with this TechAtlas upgrade, if you do notice anything strange in your TechAtlas account after the upgrade, please drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know so that we can investigate!

We’ve been a bit quiet on this blog lately, but only because we’ve been working away on getting TechAtlas version 2.3 ready for rollout in mid-November!
We’re excited about some of the new features that we’re going to be introducing in TechAtlas 2.3, and at this point we are looking for a handful of beta testers to help us evaluate the new features and spot any implementation issues that we might have missed.
If you are a TechAtlas user, and will have one hour to spare in the next two weeks, we’d love to give you a sneak preview of the new software, and solicit your feedback on specific implementation and usability issues.
These beta test sessions can be conducted remotely over the Internet, and require only that you have access to a computer with an Internet connection and a web browser, as well as access to a phone (to dial a toll-free number).
If you’re interested in participating, please contact Jeff Hall at WebJunction. And thanks for your continuing feedback and suggestions on how we can improve TechAtlas!
