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-based digital signage

There seems to be some interest and use case for Drupal-based digital signage. bneil, AndrewGearhart, and btopro had a good conversation in #drupal-edu about some ideas and thought we needed to start collecting our ideas.

Let's use this wiki as a place to start organizing ourselves around what our requirements are and what general functionality we can share between our institutions.

Hopefully we'll end up with a nice list of requirements that we can work together to build a solid base for Drupal digital signage.
