    • 3. ADoM Why?
      • Project outcomes
        • Raised awareness of the benefits of a service-oriented approach in e-Admissions
        • A basis for designing effective and responsive systems and structures
        • Link with XCRI through descriptions of usage of courses information from the perspective of admissions staff
