3 Objectives for the dayThink about the evolution of services and information for IU’s community of usersInform and educate regarding OneStartDiscuss UITS strategy for service/information delivery via OneStart
4 Group activity #1Assume that you are a [student/staff/ faculty/alumnus] per your group’s assignmentIdentify institutional information that should be easily accessible to youIdentify services that should be easily accessible to youUse the flip charts to list information/services. List as many as possibleYour team has 20 minutes….go
6 Where are we todayLibrarySISOncourseUITS, etc.Users must know the path to each silo…one size fits allSilo’d data/services not integrated…user must consolidate and find related information and servicesRedundancies abound, interface inconsistencies, expensive maintenance… it will get worse.Services:Data:www
7 What is UITS’ strategy for delivery of info/services? Distributed service/content publishing by the owners of those services/dataPersistent authentication, single sign-onCustomization via choice, roles, membershipA place for presenting my data (e.g., integrated calendar) rather than paths to data sourcesDelegation (think Tivo™)Early examples show the way:
8 A reasonable objective for IU? An exampleA user’s information reports to him/her.Disparate, unplannedintegration.Not just paths to other systems or services, but consolidated, relevant information.SubscriptionsAutomatic groupsDelegationA reasonable objective for IU?
9 OneStart to IU services and information LibrarySISOncourseUITSonestart.iu.eduServices:Data:PortalAuthenticationCustomizationWorkflowDelegation
10 Post-PC future of mobile computing PortalServices connect to the Portal and the Portal connects to the evolving plethora of wireless, mobile computing devices headed to campus. Connecting each service is infeasible.
11 Demonstration and Dialogue http://onestart.iu.edu OneStartDemonstration and Dialogue
12 Role-based customization OneStart presents tailored information and services based on a user’s role(s)StudentFacultyStaffAlumni
13 A few terms… Tab Subtab Page Channel Role Invokes a page [and optionally a collection of subtabs]SubtabInvokes a focus page (a single full width channel)PageIs a collection of channels (or a single focus page)ChannelIs information or a web-based serviceRoleIs derived from membership in a GDS group (from PeopleSoft) and it enables/restricts access to tabs
14 TABS invoke a PAGE &/ SUBTABS, SUBTABS invoke FOCUS PAGES, ROLESUBTABSCHANNELIMMUTABLES BARThus….TABS invoke a PAGE &/ SUBTABS,SUBTABS invoke FOCUS PAGES,PAGES are collections of CHANNELS…all published for a ROLE(S).
15 Tabbed interface & subtabs ITSP ACTION 37:“UITS, working with the users of IU's administrative systems, should develop a common interface environment that will support the efficient and effective accomplishment of the day-to-day administrative tasks of the University.”“These [faculty, staff, students, service providers] … groups need and will benefit most from consistent and integrated access to the applications, data, and systems…. This common interface environment should be implemented across all commonly used desktop computing platforms and operating systems.
16 Persistent navigation bar Navigate among services and still retain navigation among tabsUser attention fluidly shifts betweenfocused activity that needs a large screen spaceFocus Pagemonitoring/checking activity that can be integrated[Channel] Page
17 Immutables bar Persistent Items Action Items List Search Field Workflow indicator for the Eden Workflow EngineSearch FieldImmediate access to Google, IU, KB searchesRole SelectorStudent, faculty, staff, alumni
18 Workflow: Eden’s Action List True workflow…moving documents/ transactions from initiation to completionA single place for all IU action requestsAssignable routing paths with status trackingAutomates IU’s business rulesDirect access to the data/service for action (not a menu)Digital signatures on transactions“Stop the paper/ insanity”More to follow….as Eden evolves beyond HR/ERAalerts of Action Items are optional
19 Community services Calendar Threaded Discussion Classified Ads Integrated calendarOncourse, Exchange, IU Events, etc.Threaded DiscussionGeneric threaded discussion toolClassified Ads
20 Personalization Users can change the portal for the way they work Subscribe/unsubscribe to channels and alertsSet application parameters – activity and report parameters, stocks, dates, and chat defaults….etc.Format portal page – colors, fonts, columns, …Create/edit profilesAdd/remove links
21 Co-BrandingA future release will support a co-branding concept for Role/Group owners
22 Publishing a channel Channels are the basic building blocks ServiceFind a book, check a waitlist, pay for ticketsInformationAn integrated calendar, class announcements, HR benefits signup deadlines, CNN headlinesPublishing requiresA URL, title, height in pixels ( pixels)
23 Adding a channel to a page Drag and drop publishingFiltered by role and GDS groupsManaged by role owners or via user personalization
24 Publishing a focus page as a subtab A focus page can be an existing service/website...but…It can be leaner as OneStart provides navigation and other formerly silo’d services
25 Publishing exampleCreate a tab for students who are members of any IUB fraternity or sororityChannel page should include ?, ?, ?Subtabs should include ?, ?, ?Create a tab for students who are members of the Gamma Gamma Moo fraternity
26 Group activity #2 Delivering IU services and information via OneStart Work in small groups to discuss near- and longer-term opportunities for using OneStartWhich information/services would users value most? How could those services/info be represented as channel or focus page?
