California-HigherEd

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

This group was formed out of a meeting of minds at DrupalCon San Francisco 2010. The idea is to promote Drupal adoption on public California University campuses. This group overlaps with the education groups available, but the mission is different. This group is specifically focused around evangelizing for Drupal adoption on California University campuses and sharing available resources among those campuses.

This is an especially important time for promoting Drupal as both the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) systems are looking towards moving IT Services into cloud services. These offices are not yet aware of the adoption rate and impact of Drupal on campuses state-wide and a group is needed to both evangelize/advertise that fact and also to promote further adoption on campuses.

When posting to this group, please also cross-post (just check another checkbox) anything that is not California specific to the Higher Education group as well.

Field audit module: make data owners happy

I have just promoted the Field Audit module to a full project, and thought fellow Higher Ed folks would be interested. This module adds an additional administrative note to every field for things like recording approval for data use, or noting integration points. It also generates a field audit report that you can hand over to data owners on your campus which shows all fields for any entity or bundle along with the admin notes and any feeds importers that map to that field.

Drupal vs. Hannon Hill Cascade???

CSU Bakersfield has retained a web design firm to redo our site. They are proposing that we use a customized Drupal implementation. Some on campus are not in favor of going with an open-source solution and are instead interested in exploring Hannon Hill's product - I believe it's because several other CSUs are using Hannon Hill, and they feel we will get better support, training, etc, etc. I'm wondering if anyone can chime in on either product and if anyone has used either for their entire university/college site. What are the pros and cons to each?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Benchmarking Higher Ed Sites ...

I recently revisited an old pet project of mine looking at benchmarking and comparing higher education sites. It is obviously a work in progress, but it is shaping up fairly well at this stage and I'm getting to a point where I'd like to secure some feedback. If 'ya get a chance, please take a look and let me know what you think. It's based on D7, represents around 3,200 US higher ed sites, and has a range of data to sift through.
