Session presentation at the 2012 Jasig Sakai Conference
This past winter the Registrar’s Office at the University of Wisconsin-Madison set the goal of delivering grades to students on their smartphones by the end of the spring semester. This was the first step in making it easier for students to access important information currently available only within PeopleSoft. After considering a variety of approaches, they decided to leverage the mobile capabilities of the campus portal. We will discuss the decision making process, system architecture, design process, progress to date and plans for the future. We will highlight the role uPortal and uMobile play.
