Introducing Tzolk’in, UW’s New Calendar System
October 11, 2010 — The University of Wyoming has launched a new central calendaring system, Tzolk'in.
Powered by Trumba Corporation, a Seattle-based developer of novel event calendar publishing technology, Tzolk'in will serve as an effective tool for students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and the general public to stay informed about what's happening on the UW campus.
The interactive, user-friendly calendar provides an organized listing of university events. Users are able to view and submit event information, send events to their personal calendars, receive e-mail and text message reminders and notifications of event changes and browse by event category.
"We want our students to be actively engaged in various activities that UW has to offer and it's our responsibility to make that information easy to find and readily available to our students in a central location," says Sara Axelson, the university's vice president for student affairs. "Our hope is that Tzolk'in will accomplish this goal and we are excited about launching this product here at UW."
Tzolk'in is the name bestowed by Mayanists on the 260-day Mesoamerican calendar used by the Maya civilization of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica.
