In Progress Major Milestones

  • MyPlan 2.0: Milestone 1 (warning)  , MyPlan 1.1 Enhancements and UW Hard Launch
    • Target:  December 10, 2012
  • MyPlan 2.0: Milestone 2 (plus) , Registration Planning
  • MyPlan Contribution: Technical Review Planning and Preparation (plus)
  • MyPlan 3.0 Planning (plus)

Demonstrations

Recent demonstration: rSmart Webinar for potential adopters

Key Issues and Risks

  • Production support and maintenance for MyPlan 1.0 is decreasing development velocity on MyPlan 2.0
  • Supporting inquiries from other institutions interested in MyPlan is requiring key team resources
  • Effort associated with the contribution process is currently unknown, and will likely require at least one full iteration from the UW's MyPlan team 
  • Backlog of desired features for MyPlan 2.0 far exceeds team capacity  
  • MyPlan 2.0 features (registration planning) overlap with Enrollment, requiring additional coordination across efforts to ensure non-duplicative efforts and coherent design at touchpoints 
  • Ongoing process of functional vetting with the FC has not yet been established (discussions in progress) 
  • Other institutions are beginning to draw the MyPlan code base down.  Having others adopt MyPlan prior to completing the contribution may result in re-work for them later and 'forking' of the core product code

Detailed Status

MyPlan 1.0 (tick)


Overall: Complete

Overview: MyPlan 1.0 includes

Objective: Deliver a foundation for academic planning that supports multi-quarter (long-term) academic planning and provides a foundation for additional enhancement and integration to KS Enrollment).

MyPlan 2.0 (warning)


Overall:  At Risk,Trending Flat

Overview: Enahnce MyPlan to include registration planing (students' #1 priority at the UW) and adviser recommended courses and plans (adviser #1 priority).  Complete additional backlog features as possible.

Objective: Release highest priority features to production at the UW by end of September 2013.  Coordinate as necessary with KS project team and Functional Council to ensure community alignment and appropriate/necessary collaboration on areas of overlap and connection across MyPlan and ENR.

Reason for At Risk status: Team resources are being diverted from development to other activities, including production support, fielding inquiries from other institutions, coordinating with KS Enrollment team, and completing the contribution process.  Additionally, technical coordination with the KS core project team is requiring more of Kamal's time, making him less available for MyPlan development.

Recent demonstration: 

Next demonstration: None planned for KS community.  Will coordinate with KS Functional Director to understanding expectations and timing for interacting with the Functional Council.

In-Progress Functionality

  • MyPlan 1.1 and UW hard launch
  • Registration planning -- addition of course offering details on course details page is in development
  • Registration planning -- analysis and design for more granular, quarterly planning underway

Upcoming Milestones

  • Registration Planning
  • Audit plan -- next quarter
  • Adviser recommended courses (per student)
  • Adviser recommended plans (per program, cohort, etc. -- TBD)

Risks (in order of priority)

  • Supporting inquiries from other institutions interested in MyPlan is requiring key team resources
  • Effort associated with the contribution process is currently unknown, and will likely require at least one full iteration from the UW's MyPlan team
  • Production support and maintenance for MyPlan 1.0 is decreasing development velocity on MyPlan 2.0
  • Backlog of desired features for MyPlan 2.0 far exceeds team capacity, creating expectation management risks for year 2  
  • MyPlan 2.0 features (registration planning) overlap with Enrollment, requiring additional coordination across efforts to ensure non-duplicative efforts and coherent design at touchpoints 

MyPlan Contribution (warning)


Overall In progress, but at risk

Overview

Objective

Reason for At Risk status: Effort and resourcing to contribute and package as a public release is unknown.  

Progress Metrics

MyPlan 3.0 Planning (plus)


Overall:  On Track

Overview: The UW's year 3 Student Tech Fee Committee proposal is due January 11th.  We need to identify the scope of work that will be proposed.

Objective: Define year 3 scope that lives within the sweet spot of:  addressing known student needs at the UW, addressing UW institutional priorities, aligns to KS roadmap and community needs, has synergies with a potential represents a logical extension of the product, and is technically feasible to deliver within a one year fixed timeline.

Reason for At Risk status: N/A  

Progress Metrics

In-Progress Functionality

  • UW scope candidates and initial prioritization
  • Initial research and analysis related to potential pursuit of Gates Foundation grant

Upcoming Milestones

  • Clarify UW institutional priorities
  • Solicit student feedback
  • Assess technical feasibility and risk
  • Assess alignment with KS Enrollment plans
  • Publish to KS Functional Council (level of interaction and input TBD, based on discussions with KS Functional Director)
