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.

Drupal and 8 other open source and proprietary CMS's evaluated by University of Florida

Hi Everyone,

I stumbled on this evaluation of enterprise CMS's created last June by the University of Florida. The formal mission of this is to "...identify UF’s web publication needs, review the available options, and recommend an enterprise solution."

It comes to some interesting conclusions

  • Drupal is ranked 7 out of 8
  • The top three rankings are all proprietary solutions (Oracle being #1)

The end of the report weighs and grades each CMS on various categories. Its interesting to see where Drupal excels and where it was identified as insufficient.

The good news (I believe), is that many of the areas where we were identified as insufficient are being addressed in Drupal 8.

Anyway, I'll leave this here for anyone interested.

Student portal in Drupal

Our Drupal team has recently been tasked with building a Student Portal for the campus. It will need to pull data from enterprise systems such as PeopleSoft (student data) and Desire2Learn (LMS), as well as other Drupal sites (news and events). I was wondering if anyone in this group has built, or is currently building, a student portal in Drupal? If so, I'd love to hear about your experience.

Creating a taxonomy for university websites

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is currently redeveloping our main website in Drupal. We will be moving the rest of the university to Drupal using templates as we go forward.

Our site is over a decade old, so this has been an arduous process and evolution.

We are currently developing a taxonomy for our main site (which includes academics, admissions, campus life, research, etc) that we are hoping will apply to our subsites (colleges, departments, programs, etc.). At this point it is a rather daunting process and can clearly get out of hand if we aren't careful.
