IT, academics, content experts and members at large.
-	Establish a set of objectives

achieve your goals and objectives

educational institution, for example, will additional training be 
required for instructors, etc.

Step 4. Define requirements and gather information

market to all.

-	What is required in order to maintain the site?
-	Considerations for the future.

Step 7. Present results of report to administration

-	Put together a final report from steps 1 through 6 and present 
the report to administration.

Step 8. Develop an implementation plan
