  • 3. What is an MSE? <ul><li>Multi-School Environment (MSE): </li></ul><ul><li>Where multiple schools share identical data points in the NACELink instance, but retain independence in customization and branding to the point that it does not interfere with shared data points. </li></ul>
  • 4. Why an MSE? <ul><li>Shared jobs </li></ul><ul><li>Shared employers and contacts </li></ul><ul><li>Shared events </li></ul><ul><li>Shared dual-affiliated students </li></ul><ul><li>Potential cost-savings </li></ul>
  • 5. Basic Terminology <ul><li>Symplicity : Provides the technology for the NACElink system; </li></ul><ul><li>NACElink : The actual name of the product and organization </li></ul><ul><li>Picklist : List of options on a form (i.e. industry, job function) </li></ul><ul><li>Form : Each webpage within your site (i.e. job posting page) </li></ul><ul><li>Flags : A way to keep track of data points unique to your system </li></ul><ul><li>Contact : Individuals, each with a separate account, assigned an employer </li></ul><ul><li>System Setting : There are hundreds of settings that you must set-up. </li></ul><ul><li>Affiliation : The assignment of a manager, contact, and student to a particular school(s). Users may have one or multiple affiliations. </li></ul>
  • 6. Basic Overview – Shared Items <ul><li>Student / Employer contacts data : all managers can view, though cannot edit, all MSE student data. Only managers with the same school affiliation as the student can edit student data. </li></ul><ul><li>Registration Method: The unique identifier determines the login process and how each student account is registered “distinct” within the system. All schools must have the same unique identifier (i.e. student ID, email address, or Secure Sign-On) </li></ul><ul><li>OCR Schedules & Events : Managers cannot see the events at other schools; they can only see their own; they have to log in as a student to see what is available for all students </li></ul><ul><li>Shared System Settings : Most system settings are unique to your system, however, depending on how closely your students work with students at the other schools, it can be beneficial to make more joint decisions than the ~25 that you’re forced to make together </li></ul><ul><li>Picklists </li></ul>
  • 7. Basic Overview – Not Shared Items <ul><li>Independence in Customization and Branding : each school has a unique header and footer; system brand; announcements; interface composition; web address, localization, emails </li></ul><ul><li>Flags : These are not shared nor is the relationship management tool or counseling notes; so there is no way to communicate with your MSE schools when you have contacted an employer or student </li></ul><ul><li>Emails : There are over 100 emails that required customization to your specific school. </li></ul><ul><li>Forms : These pages collect information from your users. They are not shared. </li></ul>
