Weekly Web Updates – February 27, 2017

There is now an interactive Campus Map for MIIS, which you can find in the Quick Links section of their site header.


Fixes and Tweaks

  • We applied several changes to update links in applications to point at the address of the new Banner servers, including GO, the Course Catalog, and a few WordPress sites like MiddCORE. Links in our Drupal sites were updated to route the URLs through GO.
  • The processes which sync data from Banner to external databases for the Online Donor Roll, MiddSTART, MiddGOAL, the Course Catalog, and MyEmma were also updated to connect to the new Banner hosting.

Ongoing Work

  • Creating a new website for the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
  • Building out the configuration of our Omeka, and CAS servers in Chef, which is a configuration management system. We have already completed this work for our Drupal, WordPress, MediaWiki, GO, and the Course Catalog services.
  • Upgrading the Drupal sites for the Davis programs, Dining Menus, and Museum of Art to Drupal 8.
  • Integrating Panopto (streaming videos) and Canvas (LMS).
  • Providing Course Hub access for Schools Abroad courses.
