Connections: A Comprehensive Student Portal. Concept Paper and Proposal.
Harr, Gary Lynn
A student Web portal is a personalized, student-centric view of College Web resources. The "Artemis" system at Florida Community College at Jacksonville (FCCJ), represents movement toward realization of the efficiencies and student service possibilities of a Web portal. This proposal recommends a radical expansion of Artemis functions, one that has the potential to: integrate disparate information resources at the College; increase student retention, particularly during the critical first term; increase student satisfaction on measures of institutional effectiveness;increase student access to services and provide enhanced support for distance learners; increase operational efficiency through students use of self-help resources; and revitalize student success services. Realization of these outcomes will require a major institutional commitment--comparable to that devoted to other significant College achievements--and ongoing development and support. It will require a reallocation of resources and consideration of reorganization to support emerging functions. This proposal suggests what can be done and how to get started. Discussion includes theoretical foundations; design considerations including student, marketing, integration and project management factors; design overview; portal elements; and issues and concerns including infrastructure and project feasibility and issues and staff commitment and organizational support. Implementation suggestions and a bibliography are appended. (AEF)
