What’s content governance? The risk of launching this type of portal is that it can become a free-for-all -- with lots of messy, disorganized content. The Portal Leadership Team is seeking to establish a governance structure that ensures a unified and meaningful experience for the U.
|The Team watches a demonstration of the Portal rough draft.|
- What are the criteria for deciding what constitutes an alarm versus a notification? Who decides what meets each criteria set?
- Who decides what the attributes will be? Who gets to use which attributes when they create content?
- Which content appears on the home page? Which content appears in fixed/immovable positions?

The team also saw an early demonstration of the rough draft of the portal, which will be released on September 16. Feedback on the work done so far was very positive. "I was encouraged and excited by the demonstration and the retreat itself," said team member Carrie Meyer. "It's reassuring to know that a broadly representative group is working on the Portal governance model proposal, including great people from each campus in the system."
