The Development of an All-in-one Virtual Campus From Ground Zero

The OSS provides functionality in 16 main areas: DAU Public Website, Registration, Enrollment, Login , OSS User Types, OSS Collaboration Tools, Search , History, Logs, Reports, Canned Email, Feedback, Help, Courseware Interfaces, Test Application , and Database Interfaces.. We are currently on the fourth build of the system and have since added many new features and functions since its inception.
