Annotation

As educational communities expand and diversify, colleges and universities are seeking ways to better serve the unique needs of all their constituents. Web portal technology allows educational institutions to integrate all the information and services used by their communities, and to present these in a seamless, self-service web environment that offers a unique experience to every user.
Written by Richard N. Katz and a stellar panel of experts in the field of educational technology in higher education, “Web Portals and Higher Education” examines a full range of issues that any educational institution must consider before beginning to develop a portal, including business challenges, organizational implications, policy choices, and technology concerns.
A college or university may choose to license uPortal-a collaboratively developed technical framework for assembling and organizing college and university content and service channels-or it may decide either to license a commercial portal or to develop an in-house solution and gain full control over the portal's design and maintenance. This resource will help guide an institution's decision about which approach is most appropriate for their situation.
