GitLab is a central host for Git repositories. It's like GitHub, but operated by Mason for Mason. Any student or member of the community may log into it with their Mason NetID. Users may upload code either for private work or public viewing, and may allow others to contribute to their projects.

Whatsopen | whatsopen.gmu.edu
Renfred Harper
Renfred Harper, Tyler Hallada, Daniel Bond

Provide a list of all currently open dining options in/around campus, kept updated with holidays, etc. Expanding to cover more than dining locations.

Go | go.gmu.edu
Michel Rouly

Providing URL shortening would enhance branding when used by organizations in ULife and elsewhere. For example, all shortened links to a gmu.edu website would appear as go.gmu.edu/nHU8oPm instead of bit.ly/nHU8oPm.


Bookshare | bookshare.srct.gmu.edu
Eric Cawi
Michel Rouly, Eric Cawi, Jonathan Horton

Bookshare is a platform for textbook transactions, with books searchable by Name, Author, ISBN, and Class.

Advisor | advisor.srct.gmu.edu

Advisor is an automatic academic advising system. The goal is to allow students to enter their academic history in a standard form and receive an interactive list of coursework they are required to complete for graduation, as well as possible electives and prerequisite trees. This would not serve as a replacement for in-person academic advisor meetings.

Mirrors | mirrors.gmu.edu
Daniel Bond
Daniel Bond

The org would integrate and expand repo.vse.gmu.edu, which currently hosts a local mirror of open source software. Such software mirrors are currently operated by Virginia Tech, MIT, RIT, University of Nebraska, Georgia Tech, Wheaton College, University of Calgary, and other institutions. This would be coordinated with VSE Computing Resources.


Etherpad | pad.srct.gmu.edu

Etherpad is a realtime collaboration tool recently acquired by Google (http://etherpad.org/). The tool is open source, and is used at schools like MIT, MSU, RIT, and UCLA. This tool would allow members of the Mason community to easily edit documents with their peers, similar to Google Docs.

Maps | maps.srct.gmu.edu

An online mapping utility for navigation inside buildings on campus. The university has numerous mapping resources available for students to locate buildings, but none for locating specific rooms and classrooms.

People | people.gmu.edu

Want to find out about (currency exchanges | Australian wildlife | software usability | The Second Opium War)? People will build on the functionality in peoplefinder.gmu.edu by allowing students to search for professors by background and expertise, collecting their bios and research currently spread across School and College webpages.

PGP | pgp.gmu.edu

Student organization would manage a GMU public key server. This would start as a proof of concept, but would allow for future exploration to deploy a public key infrastructure for encrypted email or digital signatures for general institutional purposes.

Toolbox | toolbox.srct.gmu.edu

Toolbox will provide several services to GMU SRCT for managing various systems and services.
