Managing Content Access in Higher Education

Does anyone have any recommendations on content access/permissions implementation they can share?

I'm a (relatively new) Drupal developer at private university that's nearing the end of an almost-two-year transition from Coldfusion to Drupal 7. We have around 800 faculty/staff and almost 200 of them need (or want) access to edit specific pages or sections on the website.

Benchmarking Higher Ed Sites ...

I recently revisited an old pet project of mine looking at benchmarking and comparing higher education sites. It is obviously a work in progress, but it is shaping up fairly well at this stage and I'm getting to a point where I'd like to secure some feedback. If 'ya get a chance, please take a look and let me know what you think. It's based on D7, represents around 3,200 US higher ed sites, and has a range of data to sift through.

Hello everyone,

Montreal's 4th annual DrupalCamp is open for registration at http://www.drupalcampmontreal.com. We are once again running and education track and are looking for session proposals.

This year's camp takes place between the 16th and 18th of September at the McIntyre Medical Building on the McGill University campus here in Montreal. Our Keynote speakers this year are Drupal 7 co-maintainer Angie 'webchick' Byron and HTML5 evangelist Jen Simmons. Gábor Hojtsy, the co-maintainer of Drupal 6 will also be leading a related internationalization code sprint running from the 14th through to the end of the camp. We expect to have more than 30 sessions running in simultaneous tracks as well as both free and paid training occurring on the Friday afternoon.

We're open any session topics that relate to education including Drupal as a CMS for higher-ed, Drupal as an LMS, strategies for deployment, scalability and support, etc.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks,

Andrew Lindsay

Forming a Drupal in Higher Edu Consortium

I've been having a conversation via email with a bunch of higher EDU drupal developers which I'm sick of just talking about so let's make it happen: A Drupal in Higher Education Consortium. The goal of this isn't some kind of bloated, formal relationship but instead a series of lightweight tools across different websites (this one included) in order to help each other through problems we face.

Columbia International University New Site on Drupal

We recently completed a redevelopment of our Higher Education marketing site onto the Drupal platform. It took us just over a year to migrate it from a custom PHP site.

The web address is at http://www.ciu.edu.

I am the lead developer on it.

We are still trying to figure some stuff out for it, like staged vs. live modules and speed issues. If any one has any ideas or tips, let me know.
