Description

"uPortal is a free, sharable portal under development by institutions of higher-education. This group sees an institutional portal as an abridged and customized version of the institutional Web presence... a 'pocket-sized' version of the campus Web. Portal technology adds 'customization' and 'community' to the campus Web presence.  Customization allows each user to define a unique and personal view of the campus Web. Community tools, such as chat, forums, survey, and so on, build relationships among campus constituencies." [ excerpted from the uPortal homepage ]
