According to some individuals, portals are dead. However, students and faculty continue to struggle with the shear volume of university applications and web sites. They seek a way to abstract and personalize their individual views of the university. This session seeks to motivate the case for a portal and why uPortal is a great long-term solution. Furthermore, we want to examine how portals fit into enterprise strategies such as mobile, web services, etc. At BYU, we have been running uPortal for our enterprise portal for several years. Recently, we have undergone a re-evaluation of our portal strategy. We will share the lessons BYU has learned and our experience on why uPortal is an attractive solution to build the foundation for the future.
The last several quarters have brought us game-changing new innovations for bringing content from your SIS and LMS into uPortal. Many of these focus on the Courses portlet, but the Calendar, Map, and Notification portlets also play an important role.
We will look at the cool new advances that are available now, and some that are under development. We will hear about or directly from several schools working with these technologies and the methods they've found to be effective in this area.
Come and hear about the state of the uPortal and uMobile projects. Learn about the new features and functionality from the past year. Hear about the project's plans for the future including an overview of the project roadmap. We'll also delve into the details of the more interesting new and planned features in a brief technology review.
