Creating a shared intranet for university staff

Presentation from Intranets2015


About my talk

QUT’s new university-wide intranet builds on the work done by individual sections, and allows staff from its faculties, institutes and divisions to contribute to a shared environment.

The new intranet is built within QUT’s applications portal, QUT Virtual, and incorporates content and applications in a single space. Identity and business rules have been used to target resources to different user groups and to allow a dispersed publishing model where different authors can publish to different audiences within the same space.

Nat’s lively discussion will include:

  • engaging with the university community and using crowd sourcing to gather feedback
  • tips on combining multiple intranets in to one
  • a live demonstration of the new QUT Virtual intranet
