  • Quick TOC: Driek short intro about the context of conext, the Dutch academic landscape, and the issues it aims to solve After that Frank will take over for more details. There will be time for questions at the end - but we ’ d prefer it it you interrupt!
  • Uni ’ s less varied than poly ’ s; the 6 largest HBO ’ s have 50% marketshare of students; also, the smallest uni is 22% in size of the largest, with HBO ’ s the smallest is <1% of the largest (in # of students). Economies of scale have become important, as on one hand more competition for students, OTOH more and more is demanded of institutions. Trent towards more cooperation. OTOH a spirit of “ friendly competition ” . Universities are pretty homogenic in research:student ratio. SURF: best compared to JISC (but with 1/3 of budget per student) SURF: network (dutch edu internet backbone), supercomputing (sara), innovation (foundation), and Market – negotiate nationwide campus license contracts since 1991, at the moments with 120 different vendors. Oh, and UvA is the largest of the Uni ’ s : ). Sources: http://www.hbo-raad.nl/hbo-raad/feiten-en-cijfers http://www.vsnu.nl/Universiteiten/Alle-universiteiten.htm

  • Why the library is interested in VRE ’ s (and in effect, a driver for UvAConext). Treloar ’ s 3 silo model. Focus on 3 rd silo has not been effective, we must interneve to offer services earlier in the academic workflow.
  • Inspiration for our approach is the DaMaRO project from Oxford (which had a session this CNI fall 12 Monday 1600-1700). As you see, it gets already more complex.
  • And if we add the overlapping projects, it becomes very complex.
  • It ’ s complicated. But monolithic is out.
  • We want this: integrated portal.
  • … and this is what happens in practice. 8 separate, unconnected systems each work better than a monolithic system.
  • Surfconext: superglue.

  • Current examples – Frank will tell more in a moment.
  • UvA+HvA google apps rollout using conext
  • UvA+VU humanities faculties work together using conext
  • Components and standards in use by Conext
  • Overview of the different elements of SURFConext
  • How this this work in practice A group of people decides to work together - the log on using Conext , selecting to a portal The groupleader selects the group portlet an form a group an invite the others One or more tools are selected , all credentials and group relations are provisioned to the right tools If a group member logons on to the tool , the right info and groupmemberships are visible

  • Instellingoverschrijdende samenwerkingsverbanden technisch realiseren (Edia als partner). Authenticatie, Groepen, Gedeelde gadgets
Federatieve authenticatie, autorisatie en groepmanagement van Conext voor UvA Communities: Aanbieden van (externe) diensten aan UvA medewerkers/studenten E.g. Videoconferencing, repositories, science netwerken, etc Eerste hands on ervaringen met Open Social standaard Conext software en methodiek als basis voor integratie UvA en HvA ICT diensten Integratie met behoud eigen infrastructuur

    31. 31.
