Page Automation

Turner Learning's CNN NEWSROOM is produced late every night and taped by teachers across the country. But how could Turner Learning's education writers provide a teacher's guide online in time for class every morning? It semed impossible: the show's format differs from night to night, and the writers are not HTML gurus.

Merrill-Hall built a page automation system named The SelfBuilder. No matter the length or order of NEWSROOM's segments, the guide comes out right every time. The producers can worry about producing, the writers can concentrate on writing, and the overworked teachers can teach, knowing a guide will be there for them every morning.
