Procedures for Use of eBoard
1. To list an event on the left side of the board, add the event through Teachers College Content Management System (TC-CMS). Someone in your department, program or office should already have an account setup to access it. If that is not the case, you can request a TC-CMS user account.
2. There are two ways to display ads for your events on the right side of the eBoard: Request that an ad be created for your event, or create and submit your own GIF or JPEG image (Note: Do not use the Firefox browser to submit your JPEG file).
- Requests for Events must be submitted at least five days prior to the day the event is to begin being displayed.
- Requests for Billboards may be made at anytime, but must be accompanied with a suggested schedule for display (i.e. starting and ending dates). The suggested schedule is subject to review by the E-Board Advisory Group.
- Event descriptions must be 250 characters or shorter.
- Billboard displays must be either GIF or JPG images, and 628 pixels wide by 700 pixels tall.
- At this time, any requests for further clarification or questions may be directed to the eBoard Advisory Group.
