||UNC System-wide Content Management System
Unanimously adopted by the UNC Faculty Assembly, November 2005.
WHEREAS, A UNC System-wide Content Management System (CMS) would enable UNC faculty and staff to access, share and collaborate on the creation of teaching and research-related materials across the UNC system, and
WHEREAS, features such as access control, version tracking, usage statistics, and standardized metadata would provide UNC campuses a useful and protected environment to store and retrieve content, and
WHEREAS, increased sharing of teaching material and to other content through a CMS would encourage collaboration and reduce duplicate efforts in course development,
THEREFORE, be it resolved, that the Faculty Assembly endorses the joint creation by TLT and the Faculty Assembly Technology Committee of a pilot to introduce the CMS concept to faculty and allow faculty to work together to develop a system that supports the open sharing of materials while reserving intellectual property rights.
