Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium The ESUP-Portail project Pascal Aubry Consortium ESUP-Portail / University of Rennes 1
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium History How the project began, how it grew to its present size
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium The very beginning May 2002: 4 projects selected –EEPUN (partner Microsoft) –Monte-Cristo (partner SCT) –ENCORA (partner Sun) –ESUP-Portail (no industrial partner, open-source based) Funded by the French Ministry of Education –about $8M for the whole project –development and investment Of the four, one is still operating: ours
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium Our operational goals Create an open-source portal for universities Adopt an existing solution or build a new one Distribute the final product
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium Our numerous other goals Explore new technologies –for providing access to digital resources and services Encourage the use of IT –by integrating IT technologies in a single environment Enhance the cooperation between institutions –by adopting common standards Expand the ESUP program –to reach a wider public
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium Our numerous other goals (cont.) Implement tools for independent learning within the LMD (Licence, Master, Doctorat) framework Propose up-to-date tools for a modernized pedagogy Soften the line between on-line education and traditional in-class education Develop new kinds of relationships –between students and their professors –between students and the services proposed by their institution
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium Our numerous other goals (cont.) Promote mobility throughout Europe via inter-institutional exchanges and/or internships Provide organized and controllable access to institutional applications Simplify administrative procedures Improve information quality Organize new modes of communication for different university activities
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium Our strategy and targets Strategy –Schéma Directeur des Environnements Numériques de Travail (SDET) Architecture, authentication, interoperability Targets –digital universities –regional digital universities –thematic digital universities
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium Our preferences for implementation Consideration of existing technologies Open-source software A solid, well-understood technological base and architecture –J2EE, uPortal, CAS A flexible, modular and evolving system –adaptable to the institutional strategy Respect of standards –directory: SupAnn (French standard that extends eduPerson) –authentication, authorization and SSO: CAS & Shibboleth –interoperability: XML, Web services, JSR-168 (portlets)
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium Our preferences for implementation (cont.) Specific components in addition to the usual portal tools –e-learning platforms –pedagogical services –documentation modules –administrative Information System applications –system applications The coherent deployment of services
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium Our path towards to the solution Choosing a portal –a home-made solution was planned –uPortal was finally chosen Choosing an SSO –several solutions were evaluated –CAS was quickly selected for its permanence security portability ease of uPortal integration Adding services
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium The architecture Information System Central Authentication Service portal students and staff services from the administrators point of view, Information System-centered from the users point of view, user-centered
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium A typical Information System for a French University Staff (Apogée) LDAP Students & courses (Harpège) Accounting (Nabuco) Misc services
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium The ESUP-Portail community More than 1,000,000 users predicted by Dec 2007
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium The initials members 5 universities –university of Valenciennes (coordinator) –university of Nancy 1 –university of Nancy 2 –university of Rennes 1 –ENSEEIHT Sept 2004: 72,000 users 20 full-time developers (one year) –only a few Java developers
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium Our deployment partners A few test sites –to validate the proposed portal prior to its widespread distribution In 2004/2005, most of these sites use the solution in production
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium The official members 76 institutions –universities –regional digital universities (9 out of 11) –Hautes Ecoles Most sites using the portal by Sept 2007 Today: 300,000 users
Copyright © 2006 ESUP-Portail consortium Our organization An operational coordinating committee composed of the project leaders in the original member institutions communication strategy meeting organization A technical coordinating committee composed of the engineers responsible for the main sub-projects technologies frameworks integration QA
