Mind the Gap: A Fully Fluid Student Center 

10-04-2019 11:28 AM

In upgrading to Campus Solutions 9.2, CLC evaluated the practicality of ‘going fluid,’ and providing a responsive, mobile friendly student experience. While the initial fit gap analysis revealed the need for extensive legwork to replicate existing Student Center functionality not delivered in the new fluid platform, the College ultimately decided to move forward and launch a fully fluid Student Center. From a functional perspective, this presentation will lend insight into the steps taken to fill the gaps, what CLC customized, and some tips and tricks learned along the way.

This presentation will review the following topics:
•Understanding and leveraging homepages to create a dynamic user experience
•The use of tiles and decisions to use dynamic vs. static tiles
•Capitalizing on existing functionality and linking tiles to activity guides
•The decision making process to rebuild existing customizations in the fluid platform
•The thinking behind CLC’s decision to customize the delivered tile icons
•Building new pages and tiles to replicate 9.0 Student Center functionality, including
Class Schedule
Enrollment Appointments

In addition to reviewing steps taken to modify and enhance the delivered fluid student experience, this presentation will share general tips and tricks for preparing to upgrade, including testing fluid components by form factor and the need to test all fluid pages on all devices, and other knowledge learned along the way.
