"Omniture's SiteCatalyst and Test & Target tools might be able to do this, it would take some integration on both ends.  It's also expensive.   I think you could also get the same effect using BTBuckets and SiteApps, though it…"

Course registration + personalized recommendations

Looking for a system by which students going through course registration are provided with personalized recommendations of courses to take (much like Amazon does with product purchase/browsing history) based on outstanding academic requirements for graduation, past enrollment trends (i.e., BIO101 would lead to a BIO102 recommendation) and/or schedule vs. course availability (so as to fill a full-time schedule without having to manually control for or manipulate around previously selected…See More

Since on most of our pages there is nothing that would require secure information I've never felt the need for HTTPS. Our class registration pages are secure but not the general information pages. The warning is going to scare people though. Are others upgrading their websites?See More
