FYI Corner: Station Bento, Thinking Outside the Box

A few months ago we introduced you to Station Bento, since that time we’ve shared updates and showcased the product at NETA, the @PBS Interactive Summit, and via a systemwide webinar earlier this month. An archive of the webinar is available here.

As we move forward with Station Bento, our six Alpha Test Stations have been helping us develop the product by testing site templates, page creation, and plug-ins/modules. They’ve also been reading through a lot of documentation and participating in numerous demonstrations. But Station Bento is a new kind of PBS Interactive product – this one has something for all stations and we want all stations to help us build it.

We’ve released a survey that we want everyone at every PBS station to fill out. See, Station Bento isn’t just for the Web gurus, it’s got something for everyone and is built to encourage collaboration across local stations and across the system. To help us build a better product to serve all station professionals, we hope you will take the time to take the survey and tell us what you want and what you need from your station’s local web site.

To make sure you are with us every step of the way, we’ve also planned a few online events in January to give you information about Station Bento that is relevant to you and to your station. These webinars are your opportunity to learn more about Station Bento and how it will help YOU.
