The Power of Portals

Florence Olsen, Tidsskriftet for Universiteternes Efter- og Videreuddannelse, Aug 07, 2002
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Decent coverage of the now well-established trend of colleges and universities to deploy institutional portals. A couple of important errors: first, contrary to the article's suggestion, a portal should not be thought of as an alternative to sending emails; indeed, your portal should send a personalized email newsletter every day. Second, purchasing a major commercial system does not, as the article suggests, mean that campuses no longer need teams of programmers to maintain their online presence. Installing and maintaining such a system is a major enterprise and may involve the hiring of extra staff.
