Notre Dame Revamps Legacy Portal With OneCampus

rSmart's OneCampus

The University of Notre Dame is rolling out a new platform for connecting students, faculty and staff with institutional services, applications and information — from any device. The school turned to rSmart's OneCampus to host its insideND online community.

OneCampus is a cloud-based Internet2 NET+ offeringfor organizing an institution's Web-based services, whether they are hosted on campus or in the cloud. Features include a Google-like search, ratings/reviews for services, dynamic categories such as "most popular" to promote service discovery, task-level announcements, alerts, featured tasks and more. The technology is the result of the collaboration between seven universities, Internet2 and rSmart; Indiana University, University of Utah, University of Maryland, University of Pittsburgh, Clemson University, University of Nebraska Omaha and Brigham Young University-Idaho helped guide development of the product.

The implementation at Notre Dame is focused on meeting user needs, according to John Hartman, business systems analyst for the university. "Since selecting OneCampus, our team has been building out our site and actively soliciting feedback at 'Look and See' sessions with various user groups and departments," said Hartman in a press release. "We have also identified ways to include students in the implementation process such as helping to collect information and create tasks to ensure a smooth transition between portals."

"As mobile use continues to rise on campus, many schools are searching for a cost-effective replacement or alternative to their legacy portal that will meet the dynamic and changing needs of their current and future students," said rSmart CEO Tony Potts. "We are thrilled to have Notre Dame join our growing community of forward-thinking institutions on this important path to progress."
