EngageNY Portal Components of the ENYP An instructional information system that will: Allow authorized educators, students (grades 6 through 12), and their legal guardians (all grade levels) to log in and view student educational data through data dashboards Provide users with access to instructional and learning resources tagged to CCSS through the EngageNY content management system, and Enable educators to create secure online professional learning communities to share resources and collaborate with colleagues across the State, region, district, or school.
Building a sustainable, flexible, and secure ecosystem of applications EngageNY Portal ObjectiveChallengeAddressing the Challenge SustainabilityMany instructional information system deployments are monolithic, “one-size-fits-all” applications Provide a path for districts to quickly develop, license, and deploy new applications at a low cost FlexibilityThe cost of switching application providers is high (i.e. “vendor lock-in”) Direct providers to use open, non-proprietary standards for data integration in order to reduce costs and expand choices SecurityData security and privacy protocols are not standardized across schools and districts Develop and implement rigorous and standardizes protocols
Building a sustainable, flexible, and secure ecosystem of applications EngageNY Portal Many states recognized these challenges, leading to inBloom: founded with support from the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) to enable participating states and districts to increase their educational technology options, lower costs, and protect data security and privacy. supports the EngageNY Portal’s objectives of sustainability, flexibility, and security. nonproprietary and open source.
