  1. FSU’s Portal Project Student Affairs Secure Applications in Blackboard Jeff Bauer Office of Technology Integration 5/5/2005

  2. Desired Portal Features Common, consistent layout and navigation “Right content at the right time in the right place” Single Sign-On with “pass-through” authentication to other systems, using one account (“FSUID”) User-centric with dynamic content generation Unified presentation of content and services from different systems Connected to FSU home page (e.g., “You@FSU”)

  3. Existing FSU Portals: Blackboard

  4. Existing FSU Portals: PeopleSoft Financials, HR & BusObj

  5. SecureLogin

  6. Existing FSU Portals: FSUID

  7. FSUID Helpdesk

  8. One Portal Solution? • No one portal product can deliver native content from PeopleSoft and Blackboard • Strategy should be to use an existing, proven portal technology to tie together as much content as possible. • New FSU Home page should provide a login button for the unified portal (e.g., “You@FSU”)

  9. Which Portal? • Blackboard is arguably the longest running portal framework with the largest user base running at FSU. • Blackboard is well supported jointly by ODDL and OTI. • Blackboard’s portal framework is maturing enough to consider it for custom content.

  10. Secure Login • Secure Login, AKA “Online Personalized Web Services” is used for the majority of student services (class schedules, registration, grades, Financial Aid, etc.), including a number of Student Affairs applications • Scheduled to be within Blackboard starting May 24th, 2005

  11. Protecting Personal Information • Replacement of SSNs by an FSU “Security Number” (FSUSN) • Make student email addresses not publicly viewable (require a valid student, faculty or staff to log into Bb first) • Keep employee work contact still public (http://directory.fsu.edu/search)

  12. Used, for example, as secondary authentication for instructors entering grades on-line

  13. Secure Login in Blackboard • “SSO” for all Blackboard & Secure Apps • Secure Apps navigation is preserved • FSUID-only authentication (no more use of Webnames, SSNs, etc. to log in) • Students go to one place now, instead of two • Existing external links to Secure Login applications will still work as-is (e.g. studentsfirst.fsu.edu, portfolio.fsu.edu, etc.)

  14. The Future • Next phase: re-write Secure Login applications to be “native” in Bb • Move FSUID web pages into Bb • “Let’s Get Secure!”: • Bring up Student Email search application & remove public student email search • Promote replacement of SSNs with FSUSNs within key student systems
