Unconsortium: the Next Phase of Drupal Collaboration in Higher Education

A session at DrupalCon Portland 2013

Tuesday 21st May, 2013

2:00pm to 3:00pm (PST)

There is a growing Drupal movement in Higher Education: Drupal has moved from experimental technology of evangelists to a core technology adopted by whole universities.

NEWS FLASH: our use cases are not unique!

For the last year and a half, a small band of Higher Ed professionals from UC Berkeley, UC Davis, Penn State, and Stanford have joined forces to build a Community of Practice around Features-based development, specifically for Higher Ed. It is time for us to share what we have been up to!

Using Drupal to build applications and websites that support courses, academic profiles, event calendars, CRM integration, research groups is now common practice. Right now there are hundreds of technologists working in isolation across academia rebuilding the same functionality. Our initiative is about building on the community that already exists and leveraging our collective domain expertise in research, teaching and administration in Higher Ed.
