Priority and Funding
This project has an overall priority of 2. It is core-funded and a compliance project because of the requirement to upgrade the channel to ensure the continuation of service.
Impact and Dependencies
The work on this project is dependent on the API being received from Blackboard so that development work can start in earnest. Related documentation has been received. The new channel, once developed, cannot be put into Production before late June, and should, ideally, be deployed before the change freeze period in August. This deployment must also be co-ordinated with the release of Collaborate across other platforms at the University of Edinburgh.
Development Services have raised a possible dependency on WEB009, pointing out that deployment of the new channel should be co-ordinated with relevant work on that project. PM to check.
