This week we complete a 2 part overview of two specific portal applications for education
Last week we reviewed the Timecruiser
suite (exclusive to Higher Ed), with its Campus Cruiser portal and integrated applications like the Course Cruiser LMS and Cruiser Alert, delivered under a Software-as-a-Service model. This week we take a look at myCampus
and other apps available through the Campus EAI Consortium (the consortium works with both K-12 and Higher Ed).
MyCampus from the Campus EAI Consortium
The non-profit Campus EAI Consortium
provides a markedly different approach to portal implementation than Timecruiser’s application suite. The Consortium was founded in 2003, in response to increasing IT budget cuts, continued resource constraints, and the Internet requirements of students. Fourteen institutions got together and founded the Consortium with the mission of helping members reduce the time, cost and effort required to implement enterprise IT solutions.
: Part of their unique approach to provisioning clients is the availability of a limited set of grants to assist in integrating the portal into their environment. Grants can range from $250K to $1 million over a multiyear span.
