What are some the best ones out there? Are there any open source tools that do some of the same things? I’ve used them and I’ve seen a few, but I’m looking for some of the thoughts of the “wider community” on portals and the thoughts on them. Not just the implementation, but the way that students interact with them.
I actually went in and looked at a few of the portals I’d been able to view in the past. They’re all enterprise solutions made by big companies. I have a bias against them by and large, but…I can see the value in them overall.
In my experience, students have always rebelled against them, because they’re redundant or riddled with features that they don’t use or don’t offer the sort of utility they want/need. I’m curious to what others are doing out there.
