This presentation will focus upon specific usage cases of two Activity Guides (AG). One developed for our Student Financials department, the other for our Student Records department.
For the first AG Clarkson University collects "health insurance information" from all on-campus students. The students can opt to buy insurance offered by Clarkson, or can submit their own insurance information. The AG we developed presents this information, asks a question then directs the student to continue to a location to submit their insurance information or an acknowledgement that they will purchase insurance through Clarkson. Demonstrated in this presentation will be the various parts of the AG framework we needed to use to accomplish this task. There are features that happen "behind the scenes" that also needed to be incorporated into the process and most of these were accomplished using Application Package code injected within the Activity Guide structure. Using this methodology limited, and may eliminate, the the need for MODs.
The second AG was created around a custom "Apply For Graduation" component. This AG contained many aspects not encountered in the development of the Health Insurance AG.
The development and administrative differences between the two AGs will be part of this presentation.
Other features related to these Activity Guides will also be discussed, such as login re-direct to the Activity Guide and incorporating a Questionnaire as a step within an AG.
Finally the administration involved with assigning, monitoring, and maintaining the Activity Guides will be covered.
