We’re re-evaluating a ‘home grown’ user account creation and management system and are curious what others are using. With our current system accounts are automatically created when applicants are accepted to the University using data from our Ellucian Colleague system. Users then go to a http://mylogin.maryville.edu page to create a password and answer security questions and activate the account. The program synchs different systems together so that a single password can be used (e.g. ERP -Colleague, LMS -Desire to Learn, Email -Office 365, Portal – Sharepoint/Ellucian ………).
Over time the program has become overly complex and difficult to manage and we’re looking for a simpler solution....
The college is looking for a software vendor that can read the bar code off of the front of our student ID’s for athletic events. Students can use their ID’s to get a free general admission entrance. The bar code is 9 digits, but we only want to read the first 7 digits as that is the college ID number. The system also needs to do standard ticket sales.
If you are using a ticketing system that does this could you let me know the vendor?

Good Morning Colleagues,
I’ve recently entered the exciting world of higher education, after working 26+ years in healthcare. I was even more excited to learn that there’s a true spirit of collaboration amongst those of us that try to do the best with what we have in I.T.
One of my first tasks, as you can imagine, is to draft our I.T. strategic plan. I was wondering if any of you would be willing to share yours, just so I have a starting point and can learn from those that have walked before me. One of you has already been so gracious, but my VP would like a sampling of 4-5 as a starting point. My e-mail is below if you’re more...
The start of the semester has brought us numerous problems with students not being able to authenticate to our wireless portal to access our network and the Internet. I’m curious how other campuses control WiFi access. Specifically, are you forcing authentication? Do you allow students to use the wireless without any authentication/registration?

In relation to the following article: http://venturebeat.com/2012/08/23/autodesk-shares-tumble-22/ and due to the very poor customer services, and sky-high software pricing, our campus will discontinuing use of Autodesk after this academic/fiscal year.
I am curious to know what other campuses have replaced Autodesk with?
Are there any networking/discussion groups for people developing MOOCs ?

LLU is on the verge of engaging Panopto for class capture management.
If your university has engaged Panopto for one or more years, I would like your experience with the Viewing/Recording hours bundle.
Specifically, their pricing sheet says 12,000 recording/viewing hours. That seems to translate to me like the following:
· 5 courses which meets 40 hours per quarter and 60 students viewing it: 12,000 hours.
Is this reflective of reality or have you found that your allocation has been sufficient for full use.
So, what is your allocation? What is your FTE? Are you...
We would like to move one of our web applications from “nice” to “Wow!”, definitely in terms of graphics and design, and, perhaps, with regard to UI/UX.
Could you recommend any individuals or firms you are or have been very happy with, either as a reply to this thread, or in private?
Thank you for any guidance in this area.

Good morning, Colleagues! I have a quick question for you. Have you either been involved or provided a technical support survey to your students to determine how well you are supporting your online (or other) programs? How did determine your “categories?” Would you mind sharing your survey with us?
Thanks, in advance!!

St. Bonaventure is moving into a more robust offering of fully-online programs. It is our intention to allow our traditional, residential students to take “some” of their courses from St. Bonaventure online.
For those of you that offer both traditional and online courses, do you limit the number of online courses your traditional students can take? If so, what is the limit?

I’m writing to request some suggestions to help us identify some independent consultants who would be able to assist us with developing an institution-wide data repository strategy, as part of the College's comprehensive BI/analytics solution.
Specifically we are looking for a consultant to help educate us as to the current and future direction of the industry with regard to institution-wide data repositories (data warehouse or similar), and work with us to review, develop and recommend at least 2 possible data repository solution options for final consideration. The solutions could include building our own data warehouse, 3rd party solution(s), a combination or some other option.
Have any of you worked with firms that you would recommend?...
Just a reminder that we need your input regarding priorities and actions for information security. If you haven’t already, please send your thoughts regarding the following two questions to Valerie Vogel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We would like to receive your input before the Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) meeting next week at EDUCAUSE.
1) What are the highest STRATEGIC priorities for information security in higher education?
2) What ACTIONS could EDUCAUSE, Internet2, HEISC, and the REN-ISAC take to improve and advance information security in higher education?
Most consider their ERP where originating transactions occur as the system of record. It sound like you may be interested in an Identity/Access Management system. You feed would go into this system and based upon rolls, which can be many to one, the system will create the access need, based upon the security definitions. An IAM will update all systems you may as need, not only making sure identity objects are the same across all system, but also access to the various components as you define. This system will update AD/LDAP.

I have been asked to gather materials for the search process for our new Chancellor. I have some initial notes on what I would like to include, but thought this would be an interesting opportunity to collect some ideas and to see what others have done in similar situations.
1. Leadership Profile: The search committee is working with a search firm to create a leadership profile. If you have had a recent search for President/Chancellor, were there referencing statements to technology, data or information in the leadership profile?
2. The search committee is composed of trustees, community members, faculty, staff, students and system personnel. I have...
My division operates our campus print center. We are in the process of looking at moving to a Xerox iGen4 90 System to replace an iGen3 installed in 2008. We would be very interested in talking to schools that currently lease one of these machines.
Colleagues, If any of you are using OKTA as an enterprise identity management system, I would love to hear about your experience with it.
I can take responses off-list….Thanks, Chris
