college websites in transition
College Websites in Transition
  • Existing public website has no focus, navigation, or understandable structure
    • No consistency in look, style or organization
    • Doesn’t reinforce College branding or marketing
    • Reflects internal geo-political structure
    • Content isn’t organized by audience
    • Internal use only content mixed in with other content
    • Content isn’t written for visitors point of view
    • No workflow, review or style editing processes
college websites in transition7
College Websites in Transition
  • Existing Intranet has three “personalities” (caused by how it developed over time) and has limited utilization
    • Most users don’t understand the difference between:
      • Internal use vs. external use content
      • Anonymous vs. authenticated access
      • Mostly because the public site has historically mixed this all together and is still in this mixed state
    • Doesn’t currently allow “at home” access
college websites in transition8
College Websites in Transition
  • Need to:
    • Target audiences – providing them the specific content they need in an organized structure
    • Use the Public Website to market the services of the College and reinforce image and branding
    • Separate anonymous access content from information that requires authentication to access
    • Create a “one stop shop” for authenticated content
    • Personalize the delivery of authenticated content
so what s being changed
So What’s Being Changed?
  • Public Website (www.stlcc.edu) will be replaced by a completely new site
    • Focused on the needs of external constituents
    • Markets the College and its services
    • Unified look, style, navigation, and content workflows
    • Reinforces image and branding, new marketing
    • Utilizes Serena Collage WCMS

so what does this mean
So What Does This Mean?
  • The Public Website becomes a marketing tool
  • The College is making a formal distinction between internal-use and external-use content
  • Content of value on the existing public website that is not part of the new public website needs a new home:
    • Users (faculty and staff websites) web server
    • Redesigned Intranet
    • Learning Management System (BlackBoard)
the authentication issue
The Authentication Issue
  • Each of the College’s support systems currently has its own unique user login database (network, library databases, ERP-Banner, LMS-Blackboard, and many more)
  • College faculty and staff tend to think of them as unrelated independent stand-alone systems – therefore they think the College’s public site home page should be covered in separate login buttons for each system
the authentication issue21
The Authentication Issue
  • Until recently, network and email login was a confusing assortment of over 60 domains and workgroups – this was unified for the business side of the house as a single AD 2003 domain
  • Student credentials are coming soon, and will be part of the same AD domain
  • Lab and student resources will need to be moved into the new network structure to take advantage of student credentials
the authentication issue22
The Authentication Issue
  • Existing systems need to be migrated to use the College’s AD authentication
  • New systems, like student email (deployed as Microsoft Live @ edu), with use the AD IDs
  • All authentications, and credential support (like password resets), will use the same master login screen – this becomes the single point of entry, which will be branded my.stlcc.edu
public website navigation

my stlcc edu
my.stlcc.edu
  • The single point of entry for College systems that require authentication
  • Replaces and expands the College’s Intranet
  • A big cultural change – transition for faculty and staff who believe each system needs its own separate login button and login screen
  • The login drops them onto a portal page that personalizes the experience to the user category or even the specific user
intranets and authenticated systems
Intranets and Authenticated Systems
  • Intranets provide content that only “inside” members of your organization may access
  • This means these users must first authenticate to access content
  • For educational institutions, we have two main types of “insiders”:
    • Employees – faculty, staff, administrators, board
    • Students

what is not happening
What Is Not Happening?
  • Initial Intranet focus was on employees
    • No central repository of key documents or information
    • Information not easily found
    • Information was needed to support better decision making
    • Information was not being reviewed in a timely manner
college intranet system
College Intranet System
  • The success of the CBIL Intranet led to the deployment of a College-wide Intranet which initially consisted of two parts:
    • Static html Intranet website reflecting the “org chart” geo-political structure of the College
    • SharePoint 2001 Portal for document management
  • Internal-only access due to confidentiality concerns on content
issues with college deployment
Issues with College Deployment
  • No centralized authentication – over 60 non-trusting domains, workgroups & NDS trees
  • Login by the same domain used for email
  • Varied levels of participation interest
  • Difficulty explaining the need to/how to login
  • Not all College internal systems/data sources were represented
  • Heavy reliance on paper and paper triggers
college intranet collegeweb
College Intranet - CollegeWeb
  • Developed as a “one stop site” – one place with links to all the major College data systems
  • Branding to remove “intranet” confusion
  • DNS resolution, http://collegeweb.stlcc.edu
  • Internal name resolution only
  • New single-forest, single domain structure eliminated login confusion, misunderstanding
make sure to include
Make Sure to Include
  • Access to existing formal information systems
  • Heavily used informal tools or information
    • Usually dealing with document management
    • Usually ignored by formal IT departments
  • How staff collaborate now
    • Shared Excel spreadsheets or Access databases
    • Manual (paper) forms – paper newsletters, memos
    • Too many email attachments
intranet re engineering
Intranet Re-Engineering

performance improvement goals
Performance Improvement Goals
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Higher utilization of “organizational knowledge”
  • Making important documents easy to find
  • Manage each and every student experience better, and in a personalized manner
  • Create a structure reinforcing business processes

organizational knowledge
Organizational Knowledge
  • An effective portal transforms Organizational Knowledge
    • It’s online in a structure (not scattered about in email attachments, or on various LAN or local hard drives, or on CDs somewhere in a desk) – this ensures “role” based information is available and preserved
    • “Who” and “what” becomes easily available through a search
portal deployment factors
Portal Deployment Factors
  • People – 30%
    • Organizational dynamics, management support and leadership, ownership and accountability, trust, sharing valued, time and turnover
  • Process – 30%
    • Unclear goals or processes, changing needs and objectives, lack of incentives, lack of funding
  • Training – 20%
    • Growing skills in, and understanding of, Knowledge Management
  • Technology – 20%

site and information structure
Site and Information Structure
  • Taxonomy (categorization) and metadata (data about data) are the primary means to provide structure to unstructured information
  • It creates ordered groups, categories or hierarchies
  • This is how users will find content
  • Taxonomy is often accomplished by applying metadata to documents
categorization schemes
Categorization Schemes
  • How users try to do it
    • Document type
    • Organizational
  • Methods that add value
    • Functional (organized by process)
    • Subject oriented (organized by topic)
    • Facet based (organized into multiple taxonomies by unique characteristics - very expensive)
why use a taxonomy
Why Use a Taxonomy?
  • Provides structure to unstructured content
  • Organizes together content from multiple sources
  • Some users never search; and in many cases search isn’t as effective as structure
  • Allows users to find the content they need in a way that makes sense to them
taxonomy issues
Taxonomy Issues
  • Organizations design overly complex taxonomies and metadata strategies:
    • Too deep and too wide
    • Too much jargon
    • Too many fields
    • Too many pick options
    • Too much variation
  • Regardless of training, education, threats, or enticements, many users will not provide effective Metadata
  • Even the “best” content contributors typically won’t exceed a certain effort threshold
  • Dilution Factor: The poor work of some devalues the good work of others

what is sharepoint server 2007
What Is SharePoint Server 2007?
  • SharePoint Server 2007 is a collection of Web-based tools that make it easy to collaborate on projects
  • The tools consist mostly of pre-designed Web sites that teams or individuals use to store information and collaborate with others
    • The sites come with content authoring tools for site owners and members
    • The sites use Web conventions—access through a browser, linked information, images as well as text—to create a fast and easy method of collaborating
    • The sites create a single point from which information can be shared
sharepoint server 2007 sites
SharePoint Server 2007 Sites
  • Customizable templates create the Web sites
  • A variety of purpose-built templates are available:Team Site, Document Workspace, Meeting Workspace, Blog, Wiki Site
  • Each site comes with a number of Web Parts
    • Web Parts are content “containers” used to display information on a site
    • Site members can use Web Parts to arrange text, related links, calendars, images, document libraries, other Web pages, and more
  • Each site has a Web Parts Gallery from which additional Web Parts may be added

sharepoint permissions access
SharePoint Permissions/Access
  • All sites come with permission options
  • The default setting prevents anyone from accessing the site
  • A site owner must give specific users and specific groups access to the site
  • Site owners either add users to existing permission groups, or give specific permissions to specific users
  • By default, there are three groups used for allowing access to a site: Visitor, Member, and Owner. When you add a user to one of these groups, the user is given the permission level associated with the group.
sharepoint navigation
SharePoint Navigation

There are three ways to navigate: the left navigation menu (Quick Launch), tabs, and a “bread crumb” trail.

  • The left navigation menu is customizable, so its appearance varies from site to site. In most cases, the pages on a site will be listed on its left navigation menu.
  • Tabs across the top of the main window can also be used for navigation. A Home tab always appears. As subsites are created, new tabs generally appear for them, though this appearance is optional.
  • A “bread crumb” trail is a series of links indicating your location on a site. In addition to showing location, bread crumbs offer links to locations between you and the parent site. Bread crumbs appear below the tabs, in the upper-left portion of the main window.
