Fluid Class Search/Elasticsearch: Considerations for Implementation 

10-29-2018 09:52 AM

The Fluid/Elastic Class Search is a considerable departure from the classic Class Search. Institutions must carefully evaluate a large number of new configuration options to ensure their students can efficiently find the classes they need. These new technical and functional considerations are integral to rolling out a search that improves the student experience.

Join panelists from two diverse institutions in a discussion about their experiences implementing the new Fluid Class Search. Stephen Brawn is a Senior Developer at Northwestern University, an internationally recognized private research university. Kristin Krowiorz is an Enterprise Solutions Architect at Fox Valley Technical College, a small public technical college. The panelists were heavily involved in their implementations and are eager to share their experiences navigating the sometimes choppy waters of Fluid Class Search. Topics include specific technical and functional configuration considerations, the basics of their implementations, and a general overview of their approaches to customizations.

What should you consider when configuring the search definitions for small and large form factors? How often will you need to rebuild your indexes? Will you need to customize the search to meet your needs? How have students responded to the new search after go-live? This panel discussion will help answer those questions and provide a great opportunity to ask your own questions of your fellow member institutions.
