About STLCC • Largest community college system in Missouri serving an area of about 700 square miles; created by area voters in 1962 • League for Innovation institution • Four campuses, three education centers • Transfer, career and developmental programs • Non-credit continuing education courses • Various workforce development initiatives
Numbers (FY07) • 25,000 credit students each semester • 40,000 non-credit each year • 31,000 workforce development students • 90 credit programs • 57 workforce development programs • 1,800 faculty (420 FT) • 3,500 employees
STLCC Infrastructure • SunGardHE Banner ERP system • Single forest, single domain Active Directory • All administrative, and most student/library workstations are running Windows XP – 8,000+ desktops • All employees login through AD accounts • All employees have Exchange mailboxes (@stlcc.edu) • Growing use of Blackboard (Enterprise 184.108.40.206) • Goal is to eventually authenticate all students through individual AD accounts
Student E-mail Issues • Students • Many do not have an e-mail account • Many do not update their Banner (student ERP) information when they change e-mail accounts • Want .edu e-mail address • Faculty and Community Relations • Want a standard, reliable student e-mail address • Administration • STLCC OneCard ID requires an e-mail account • College wants a way to build an ongoingrelationship with, and a means to contact, alumni
Technology Considerations • Limited IT server support staffing • Limited capital for student e-mail / data storage • Banner is the trusted source for all student info • Already have Exchange infrastructure in place, sized only for employee accounts (200MB/1GB) • Already have district-wide AD authentication in place, DCs were sized for multiple years of student accounts • Already plan to use Microsoft ILM (MIIS) for student AD account provisioning • Limited help desk support staffing
Student E-mail Decisions • Accounts are for current, registered, credit students • Accounts are created when students register • Account ID created by Banner (3rd Party ID) • Windows Live account displayed in BannerSelf-Service (along with other e-mail addresses) • Accounts are marked as “Alumni” when student has not registered for three (Fall or Spring) terms • Accounts will be optional (personal use) at first, becoming the official e-mail address for Fall 2008 • Students may forward e-mail
Other E-mail Decisions • All Windows Live individual accounts will use the @my.stlcc.edudomain name • Windows Live accounts will also be provisioned for all faculty and employees • Employee accounts would be part of the disaster recovery plan – used for communication in the event of the loss of our primary data center and Exchange system • The official employee e-mail address will remain the College hosted Exchange server one – @stlcc.edu
Data Processing Plan • Banner process runs in batch after COB • Create 3rd Party ID in Banner • This becomes the AD samAccountName • This becomes the Windows Live account prefix • Create Windows Live address in Banner • Import Banner information into Microsoft ILM • ILM provisions AD account and imports changes to metaverse • ILM provisions Windows Live account
Initial Startup Preparations • Add PIDM (Banner unique record identifier) to existing employee AD accounts • Verify AD PIDM entry and display name against Banner student and employee records, make corrections • Load Banner 3rd Party ID with existing AD samAccountName, matched up by PIDM • Have Banner generate 3rd Party IDs for all other person records • Add MX record for @my.stlcc.edu

Project Status • Provisioning student AD and Windows Live accounts since January 12, 2008 – the initial run processed 26,089 student accounts • Existing employee AD records were updated to allow Windows Live provisioning • Daily batch updates of deltas • As of last week, over 47,200 Windows Live accounts have been provisioned • Student overview and help information is at http://www.stlcc.edu/studentemail
Promotion and Marketing • Website with: • Overview • Getting Started • FAQs • Documentation • Signs and Posters • Flyers • Ads in printed schedule • Faculty communications and training sessions
Challenges • Getting the word out to the students • Students finding @my.stlcc.edu address in Banner • Getting the word out to employees / faculty • “Overwhelming” vs. “not enough” content • Faculty training options • Individual face-to-face • Live (service week) • Webinar / On-Demand • Campus Training Coordinators for E-mail • Control on use of e-mail addresses
Future Plans • The @my.stlcc.edue-mail account will be the official communications channel with students starting with the Fall 2008 semester • Sungard Banner UDC will provide student and employee updates to ILM in near real-time • ILM will provision Active Directory and Windows Live accounts in near real-time from the Banner UDC data stream • Banner / Blackboard will be LDAP enabled for AD authentication • ILM “2” provides self-service password reset capabilityfor AD and Windows Live accounts

Lessons Learned • Communications, communications, communications • With ILM, it was just as easy to simultaneously provision AD and Windows Live accounts as it would be to just do Windows Live • Determine one source point for account information • No hyphens (-) or apostrophes (‘) in Windows Liveuser names / AD samAccountNames • Multiple support groups at Microsoft
