Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solutions Statement of Direction 2014-2015




Campus Solutions Ongoing Projects

iStar Infrastructure Update-TouchNet Upgrade
Status:  Planning
% Complete:  0%
TouchNet upgrade due to PeopleTools 8.54.  This project is part of the OTS iStar Infrastructure Upgrade (iIU) Project PRJ0043533.


Academic Partnerships iStar Integration
Status:  Active
% Complete:  64.53%
This project facilitates the integration between iStar and AP (Academic Partnership). 


Bundle 37 and Retrofit
Status:  Proposed
% Complete:  0%
To apply the PeopleSoft Campus Solutions application software Bundle which delivers regulatory compliance updates for Financial Aid Regulatory Release 2 for 2015 – 2016. It also provides a number of software fixes, enhancements and satisfies the prerequisites for Campus Solutions Bundle 38. We will also apply the Oracle Managed Services Retrofit project and any Oracle prerequisite patches or post bundle release critical patches. 


Course Catalog in XML Format
Status: Active
% Complete:  15%
Veterans Affairs Department needs an XML form for the course catalog including all certificates and degree programs.  Lone Star College will not be able to accept any new military students using Tuition Assistance (TA) starting Fall 2015 until this action is complete. 


Follett Bookstore Interface
Status: Active
% Complete:  17.52%
This project is to create the VM's and install the Follett ConnectOnce appliance which will allow for a more streamlined, accurate and flexible course import process.  The benefit is to more accurately identify and stock LSC textbooks to students by allowing more frequent data loads that are pulled from Campus Solutions rather than static Excel spreadsheets.


Milestones Cleanup and Enhancement
Status: Active
% Complete:  15%
Milestones – New Development. Add logic for Veterans Waiver.


Modifying Files Sent via Campus Solutions SAIP to Desire2Learn
Status: Active
% Complete:  0%
The current course titles sent via SAIP do not currently include any semester information.  We propose appending a short semester identifier to the session code in order to resolve this issue.  As the course titles are already quite long, the semester identifier would need to be short keeping two letters to identify the term (SP, SU, FA) and two numbers to identify the year.  An example of this course title may be "Introduction to Spreadsheets ITSW-1404-4001 SP14-1" where the SP14 and a dash are added before the session number.  This would resolve an issue where instructors cannot find their current course in the mail and course copy tools when they teach the same course and section over multiple terms.


Colleague Sunset
Status: Active
% Complete:  18.85%
To formally and officially retire all Colleague users from the prior ERP systems, Colleague, and NHCC (old NHMCCD system).


Replacement of Comevo Process
Status: Pending-Funding
% Complete:  0%
Currently,  LSC has Comevo for another year on contract to track the Orientation and Pre-Assessment Activity.  We would like to consider other options to move away from this contract whether it's possibly in-house or through another outside vendor interfacing with CS.


RSAN Emergency Management
Status: Active
% Complete:  10%
To create student files for the RSAN emergency system.


SAIP/Online College Phase 2
Status: Proposal-Draft
% Complete:  0%
Staff Provisioning in Desire2Learn
(Users not currently enrolled in a course in Campus Solutions are not in Desire2Learn (D2L).  Utilizing Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) messaging a new user can be provisioned in D2L in real time and the user can then be logged in.)

Automatically Activate/Deactivate Fully Online Courses
(Modifications to the Campus Solutions Student Administration Integration Pack (SAIP) process should allow for the automatic activation, or deactivation, of fully online courses based on the status in Campus Solutions.  Currently all courses come over as deactivated by default and this behavior should continue for all courses which are not fully online.)

Send Enrollments for Course Observations through SAIP
(Create a process for assigning multiple course observers, teaching assistants and librarians while sending these enrollments through SAIP.)

Update the Run Control for the SAIP process
(Currently all files are sent in separate announcements with hard coded timings.  D2L is expecting these files to all be in a single announcement.  The SAIP process should be updated to send all of these files in a single announcement.  When single files are selected, the timing should be configurable.)

SAIP Real Time (Close to)
(Adjust the SAIP Interface so that we can move to a close to real time integration.)


SPEEDE Transcript Phase 2
Status: Proposal-Draft
% Complete:  0%
Second phase of the SPEEDE inbound process.


TouchNet Mobile Application
Status: Proposal-Draft
% Complete:  0%
LSC is moving to a mobile platform for many of its registration and website activities. We would like to add the payment feature to this as well.  Students can currently pay on their mobile devices but it requires alot of manipulation (pinching and scrolling, etc) to complete the task.  The TouchNet mobile app will provide a better student payment experience for phones, tablets, etc.
