Among new features along the right column:
- A Huskie Bus Tracker link
- Local Google weather
- A customized tab box including Latest News, Popular and Tags
- Randomly selected videos
Other new additions include a photo stream that randomly displays only one row of images from NIU Today photo set, lists of story categories that appear at the bottom of every homepage post and a clear link to the www.niu.edu page along the top of the screen.
Readers can display their own NIU-related photographs on NIU Today.
“We encourage anyone in the Huskie community who likes to take photos on and around campus to open a flickr account and submit to our group pool,” said Holly Nicholson, social media specialist for NIU’s Web Communications Team. “Flickr will direct you to your photo stream, where you can select the photos you’d like to add.”
