"I think mobile portals a la m.nd.edu are just the first step most schools have or will make (outside of just hiring a vendor). It's easy to get your feet wet with products like Kurogo or the Molly Project while at the same time delivering info…"
Any colleges or universities out there have serious plans to put as much of their website as possible in a mobile format? I've noticed in the brief time I've spent researching the subject that most colleges/universities either only offer up a couple of sections/apps such as Library, Directory and Athletics or if they do have a few pages in a mobile format (such as Notre Dame's mobile site - m.nd.edu) they only go a couple of links deep and then let everything switch to the full site.I was…See More

I know you've been tasked with finding a software solution, though I'm wondering if you may need an interim step first: Does your institution have checklists covering all of the steps needed in on-boarding, relocating, and…"
I've been tasked with finding a software tool that helps manage the onboarding and exit process of new and departing faculty. Ultimately i would like this software to management faculty office interms of when resources can be removed from a particular office and when a new faculty member can be moved in with the necessary resources.
