Drupal in Higher Education

A place to discuss Drupal in Higher Education

 

Welcome

This Group is a split-off of the Drupal Education Group and aims ito deal with issues and challenges that are unique to Drupal in post-secondary academic environments. This group has been founded as a result of Drupalcon San Francisco 2010 when it became obvious that there was a need for a place to extend the fruitful discussions that began there.

WEB COMPONENTS, POLYMER AND DECOUPLING DESIGN IN DRUPAL

Wanted to reference this here in case people didn't see it. We've got https://drupal.org/project/webcomponents module able to go straight from polymer templates to display modes to field UI to rendered output. This completely by-passes the traditional tpl / template file workflow and allows front-end to dictate design to backend (instead of in Drupal where it's usually a mish-mash of both). It's also by-reference so updating your templates sees them updated in Drupal.

Free websites built by University of Michigan grad students

We are seeking clients for a class at the University of Michigan School of Information. Students in this class break into teams to build websites.

We have about 30 students in the class this winter, so we need 10 sites to create.

That’s where you come in.

Do you know anyone that needs a site (re)built that would be a good candidate for our students?

Centralized and Shared ECommerce Platform

This is slightly off-topic, since it's not specific to Drupal.

I'm curious if anyone has implemented a centralized e-commerce platform for use through your institutions’ various sites. The cost of re-rolling out unique site-specific implementations that meet compliance requirements is considerable.

The thought of creating links to an centralized (and controlled by Finance) seems like a winner, all around.

D6 Publishing/Caching Issue & D8 Calendar Recommendations

I'm at the University of Southern Mississippi. I'm hoping for some feedback from the higher ed community on the following:

1) Caching. We were self-hosted until December 2015 and didn't employ caching. After moving to Acquia Cloud Enterprise, we have experienced a number of issues related to the balance of caching through Varnish and user expectations on how quickly content will be available to anonymous users.

Exercises for skills courses

Quiz is a good module for many situations, but it's not as useful for skills courses as it might be. As far as feedback is concerned, learning research suggests that students need:

  • Hands-on exercises, e.g., write programs
  • Formative feedback, that is, a list of what is right and wrong with a submission
  • Opportunities to resubmit until the exercise is complete
