The iSchool PhD Portal was developed and implemented during my first year as an IMLS Fellow. It builds on earlier research to provide iSchool PhD students with an online space to communicate throughout the PhD process.
Project Goal: Design and build a portal website (http://ischoolphd.org/index.php) for Drexel iSchool PhD students based on prior IMLS Fellows requirements user research.
Project Dates: 2008 – 2009
Role: Researcher & Implementer (IMLS Fellow)
Responsibility: research content management and website platforms that would support collaboration, community and research, and can be implemented with limited resources and budget; develop content and information architecture strategy; design and implement website on identified platform, including any additional features necessary to meet project goals.
