I designed a campus user interface for a college’s Jenzabar portal system. Though never fully realized, the overall design and concepts were taken to heart and implemented.
It was important to keep in mind the wide range of user-levels a college or university holds. I used an icon system to give clear visual representation to each portlet in the JICS system and expanded the calendar to be more useful and cleanly organized. Descriptions for downloadable documents were to utilize a tooltip-style hover effect.
Sadly, many of the other features were not implemented. JICS is particularly hard beast to modify to a satisfactory level.
