    Coverage slide deck

  • StudentNET Portal

    by Josef Lapka

    Inspired by Let the students do the talking... presented at IWMW2007 our StudentNET portal concept has been worked from the initial idea to full deployment, with a go-live in Februrary 2010. A bar camp session was held on this subject at IWMW 2009 with a good attendance and positive feedback. This subject has also been chosen as a showcase at this year's UCISA Conference in Harrogate.

    StudentNET V2 is the new highly personalised Canterbury Christ Church University student portal. Combining cutting edge web technology with robust data structures, it provides students with online administrative and academic services in one place. What sets our portal apart is that it is completely managed by the University's client management system, and is fully integrated with the University's active directory for all authentication needs. There is, therefore, no manual maintenance of users' accounts or access to services, and any updates are applied to the portal in less than 30 minutes.

    At 9:50am to 10:25am, Wednesday 14th July
