Q&A With Our Gadget Idea Winner

As previously announced, the Gadget Idea winner of our 2015 Gadget Challenge was Patrick O'Gorman (pictured) from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine with his Expanded Page Info Gadget. Check out our Q&A with him below to get the inside scoop behind his winning submission.

Patrick O'GormanWhat’s your role using OU Campus at your institution?
I’m the Web Architect at PCOM, so I’m the technical lead of our web presence as well as the primary point of contact for training our end users on how to use OU Campus.

What motivated you to come up with the gadget idea?
I tried to think of things that I found myself doing on a regular basis and how those things could be done more quickly or easily. After I came up with a few ideas, I looked through the documentation for creating gadgets to figure out what would even be feasible.

How would the gadget benefit OU Campus users at your campus and others?
My gadget would provide greater visibility into who manages particular pages in OU Campus. If you stumble upon a page that needs updating, you would be able to quickly identify that page’s approver or other members of that page’s group.

What are you looking forward to experiencing most at OUTC16?
I’m still fairly new to OU Campus, so I’m looking forward to seeing what it offers that we may not be taking advantage of and how other schools are using it.
