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.

Higher Ed Summit @ NYC Camp

I'm a little late in getting this out there, but felt like it still made sense to post NYC Camp will be hosting their annual Higher Education Summit on April 11th.

More details can be found at:
http://www.nyccamp.org/summit/higher-education-summit

Even if you are unable to attend I'd love to hear some feedback and ideas on what would make for a great summit, what struggles you are having and how we can leverage each others experience to continue growing Drupal in higher ed.

Quiz 7.x-5.x

I'm trying to drum up support for a new 7.x-5.x branch of the Quiz module, optimized for Drupal 7 (not a straight port from Drupal 4/5/6) so that we can more easily port it to Drupal 8 in the future without the technical debt that Quiz currently has.

Webmaster | University of Texas Libraries

Employment type: 
Full time
Telecommute: 
Not allowed

Technology Integration Services, a department of the University of Texas Libraries, is looking for a new Webmaster. This is a sleeves-rolled-up development job, not simply a monitor and reporting position. This position is Drupal heavy, although not Drupal exclusive - probably 70% of your time will be dealing with Drupal, the rest of the time will be a mix of custom PHP and HTML, CSS wrangling, a bit of Wordpress and some more library / museum specific codebases like Islandora, Fedora Commons and DSpace.

ELMSLN packaged via Vagrant for easy spin up and try out

If you don't need to know how to setup vagrant and want to play:
https://github.com/btopro/elmsln-vagrant

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeuDKzs6sj0&list=PLJQupiji7J5fygec37Wd-g...

This screencast is a series of 4 videos (for now, will be more in the future potentially) that show how to get ELMSLN up and running with Vagrant. This is the easiest way to setup this system as other methods require knowledge of bash scripting and a clean server to deploy against.

If you don't know what ELMSLN is check out http://elms.psu.edu/blog/post/elmsln-doodle-series
