|Drupal 7 Upgrade Project||
This project ensures that the McGill Web Management System’s underlying software remains up-to-date and secure, providing site managers with numerous improvements to the toolset to help them publish timely information to end users including improvements to file and image management, slideshows and galleries, webforms and restricted pages.
The update also brings improvements to the end users as the new software will adhere more closely to web standards and provide improved support for mobile devices including HTML 5 video support.
Scheduled launch date: Sites will be migrated from January to April 2014
|Exchange and Study Away||
Simplify the process of students finding and requesting course equivalencies when researching or applying for Exchange and Study-Away programs. This project will contribute to the University’s larger goal of increasing participation in these programs, as per the Strategic Enrolment Management Plan.
Partner units: Enrolment Services, Deputy Provost (Student Life and Learning)
|SciQuest Banner Invoice Integration||
The goal of this project is to increase the efficiency of the invoice process at McGill through the receipt and automated processing of electronic invoices that will replace paper equivalents. This opportunity will also be used to review and streamline additional processes related to invoice processing.
Partner units: Financial Services, Procurement Services
|McGill Dentistry Clinic||
The goal of this project is to implement the audio-visual technologies, server infrastructure, network, telephony, and desktop support for the Faculty of Dentistry’s new dental clinic and learning space at 2001 McGill College. For more information, see Dentistry's New Facility.
Partner units: Faculty of Dentistry, Facilities Operations & Development, Teaching & Learning Services
|Non-Credit Activity Registration||
Implement a solution for the School of Continuing Studies (SCS) to enable them to effectively market and manage their non-credit activities and services offered to both the entire McGill community and the general public. These non-credit activities include classroom courses, webinars, online courses, seminars, workshops, tutoring sessions, conferences, and testing services. The solution will standardize processes across all SCS units, reduce staff effort required to manage these activities and will increase revenues as a result of the improved marketing capabilities and ease of registration.
