Rationale

The current MyNeu website has a poor UI. The most commonly used actions are not on the front page, and a lot of important actions are hard to find. Additionally, the site visually looks outdated. This project would make it easier to use, which benefits all of Northeastern.

Goals

  1. A mock-up of how MyNeu should look. This would be a completely separate, hosted portal.
  2. Ideally, that mockup would be integrated with the authentication services of MyNeu. However, this depends on whether IS will agree to help us.
    1. If we do not get the necessary support from IS, we could either do a mockup or a layer on top of MyNeu which cleans it up.

Features we'd like to see

  • highlight the most important things
  • less important things get categorized away
  • Icons for categorization
  • combined calendars
  • tiered navigation
  • account balance right on home page
  • favorite links
  • tags (ex. same link in multiple locations - coop, appt, favorites, homepage)

Resources

IS support. We would need access to their APIs and authentication services. We would also probably need help implementing them.
