For several years, Loyola Law School Los Angeles utilized a home-grown "Orientation Task Scheduler" to help incoming students complete necessary tasks prior to arriving on campus for Orientation Week.   In 2015, the scheduler morphed into an "admissions portal", harnessing both the older Orientation Task Scheduler and utilizing Drupal to make an incoming student's experience even easier.     The portal has been tailored to work with various systems, such as Banner, to provide a customized experience to students in various programs (JD, MLS, LLM).
This presentation will cover two perspectives - 1) the development/planning/deploying phase, presented by Gabe Estrada, Senior Web Developer at Loyola Law School Los Angeles, and 2) the end user experience, presented by Corinne St. Claire.
