  • campus-wide google search appliance (GSA) indicates more than 5 million web pages/files on campus <br />
  • custom coded php/mysql mixed with html, javascript, etc. <br />
  • <br />
  • but other than hiring a fantastic web designer - what else has changed??? <br />
  • in 2005 these were the facts <br />
  • <br /> <br />
  • we tried using shared web servers on campus but needed more customization and control <br /> tried using shared mysql but too many router hops between mysql and our vps - sites were slow <br /> we needed to stay on campus to keep the vanderbilt.edu domain <br />
  • <br />
  • <br />
  • <br />
  • our bread & butter <br /> the straightforward departmental site <br /> aka brochure-ware <br />
  • about half our sites in this category <br />
  • <br />
  • <br />
  • <br />
  • Vanderbilt&#x2019;s centralized identity management service <br />
  • this one needed a custom theme <br />
  • custom theme - med student blogs <br />
  • incorporates the legacy course catalog database populated by a custom php app still in use <br /> <br />
  • created event content type <br /> used views to create block showing upcoming events <br /> events are automatically moved to the previous events page once the date has passed <br /> <br />
  • very little custom module code needed <br />
  • lots of demand from students and faculty for this kind of web app - increasing daily <br />
  • our most complex drupal site <br /> course management in drupal <br />
  • <br />
  • sounds fairly simple, right? <br />
  • they say the devil is in the details - this definitely applies to the requirements for the emphasis program site <br /> access control is the key <br />
  • angie byron aka webchick of lullabot consulted on this part <br />
  • sample user is a 1st year med student <br /> showing snapshot of progress in right sidebar <br />
  • sample user is a 1st year med student <br /> showing student&#x2019;s view of their assignments <br />
  • sample mentor is a mentor <br /> lists his students in right hand side <br />
  • mentor & area head view <br />
  • <br />
  • this is basically how the emphasis site drupal code works <br />
