It is going to be a big year in Cambridge... At least in the realm of student information systems.
At the risk of jinxing myself (and my team) we are less than nine months away from transforming the way students at my institution select and enroll in classes, engage with academic advisors and self-service advising tools, and otherwise manage their academic records. If all goes according to plan, we will be marking off a series of exciting milestones, almost month by month. Next up is a smaller "back-office" release in late January, followed by a large back-office release in March. In parallel we will begin usability testing of the new course catalog search mechanism, student self-service, advising self-service, and faculty self-service. Those major end user components will be phased in during the summer ahead of next academic year. Here's to an awesome (though not "Banner" -- ha ha -- SIS humor) year ahead!
