NWACC Sponsors Workshop on Internet Portal Development
On December 13, 2000, a group of over 30 NWACC members attended a consortium-sponsored workshop on Internet portal development in higher education. The workshop was presented by Keiko Pitter, Chief Technology Officer at Whitman College, and Mark Sheehan, Executive Director for Information Services and Chief Information Officer at Montana State University Bozeman.
The workshop stressed the need for development of a broadly supported institutional portal strategy. Through a combination of lectures and interactive breakout sessions, the presenters provided a forum for the lively discussion of the principal issues involved in Internet portal development. These included:
Issues such as brand control, advertising, and integration with existing administrative applications stimulated vigorous debate, with many participants contributing stories of their own early experiences with portal implementations.
As a time for learning, sharing experiences, and considering complex issues in a comfortable, collegial atmosphere, the workshop was judged a success.
