A place to discuss Drupal in Higher Education



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.

GEDT required pages

We are struggling with the GEDT (gainful employment disclosure template) situation. I was given (a few hours before the Jan 31 deadline) a group of HTML files that must be included on our site by U.S. government decree.

The HTML files are generated by a government code generator and include CSS and javascript. The files of course do not embed nicely in the body of our pages (everything works except the JS data grab). I don't want to create sitewide JS for this one application.

I was hoping maybe some one had an article or could give me some feedback on the following settings.php configuration that I'm currently using to push Drupal 7 cache bins to APC user cache and the file system via the File Cache module. Best performance numbers I got was APC for everything but that obviously has some issues with fragmentation of the smaller cached values. Some context of what I'm also using for performance

Education Summit before DrupalCon Austin?

DrupalCon Austin is still six months away, but I am curious:

a) Has there been any talk yet of a pre-conference higher ed summit? Larger than a BOF or meeting for dinner; I'm thinking more of an all-day thing.
b) If plans are not already in the works, would there be any interest in such an event?

Using DSLM as an alternative to core Multi-site

I just wanted to point to this write up and screencast I did here about migrating from multiple multi-sites to a DSLM (https://drupal.org/project/dslm) based method of structuring Drupal core / contrib / install profiles. I had been looking for a solution like this for some time and have been very happy with it thus far both as a developer as well as server performance.
