Abstract

This project was undertaken to introduce new faculty to the technology resources available at Miami University. Using Flash MX 2004 and XML, it was possible to combine all the commonalities faculty have with specific personal data on a single CD. This combination created completely personalized information including network account settings, departmental library and technical support representatives, user-centered campus maps, academic resources, and discipline specific online learning materials. Duplicating this effort for each faculty member required simply changing userID and academic department variables for each CD. Because of the CD's success, similar projects in other areas were spawned using the same architecture. The presenters will discuss the CD's content, demonstrate the architecture using audience members' names and academic disciplines, and address the upcoming '05-'06 version.
