Loras College is a technology rich campus with a ubiquitous learning environment and about 1800 laptops in the hands of students, faculty, and staff. With a focus on the incorporation of technology into the curriculum the laptop program has been embraced by the campus since its inception in the fall of 2000. In 2003 a new campus strategic plan identified the need to improve communication, develop a spirit of cooperation, create an easer way to solve problems, and instill respect and innovation between faculty, staff, and students. The authors desire the institution to be perceived as transparent, helpful, and supportive and they concluded that technology could assist them in reaching this goal. With this in mind they began to look at solutions that would combine, link, and create interactions with various functional areas on campus utilizing our existing technological infrastructure. The solution they felt would best serve these needs was to revamp their intranet and develop a portal that would facilitate collaboration and improve communication. The complete project is described in this paper. [For complete proceedings, see ED490133.]
