Custom Web App Portfolio

The Division of Information Technology (DoIT) can develop database-driven, dynamic web-based applications for your organization. We have designed and developed dozens of custom web applications and currently host over 300 sites. Here are some examples of the web applications that we have developed. Some are very large, some quite small, and many are somewhere in between.

  • CCWE is a secure web-based application that coordinates and keeps track of information on approximately 51,000 children who are in or have been in the care of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and the coordinated efforts to ensure their academic success.
  • Engage! is a searchable database that provides the NIU community with a means to explore, acknowledge, and locate the learning opportunities, experts, and resources made possible through regional, national, and global collaborations with partners in education, community agencies, business, and industry partnerships. The goals are to ensure that all students have access to high impact, educational opportunities and to assist NIU faculty and staff and community members in building mutually beneficial research and educational initiatives that enhance the vitality of our region.
  • Experts Guide is a web-based ASP.Net application that searches for NIU experts who are frequently consulted by local, regional and national media to comment on matters that are making headlines. The application allows users to search for experts by various means.  NIU faculty and staff update their information in the system securely online. 
  • Built initially for use by our Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center, the Event Registration System is a highly customizable and flexible application for building and managing events and registrations from start to finish. Included in the application are RSS feeds, customizable messaging, attendance sheets, and reporting modules.
  • Working closely with our admissions departments, the NIU Online Application was designed to allow prospective students to apply online for undergraduate and graduate programs at NIU. Interfaces integrate and automate much of the data exchange between other enterprise systems on campus.
  • Many of the mobile apps featured in NIU Mobile were designed and built in-house. The Places app accesses menus and locations for dining halls, the Holmes Student Center, and local Huskie Bucks merchants.The Transit app shows bus locations in real time. And the e-suds app pulls information from our laundry locations to let users know when a load is complete or when washers and dryers are available.
  • Scholarship Search provides students with granular scholarship searching capabilities. A secure web-based administrative console allows administrators to manage individual scholarship details online. 
  • Sigma Tau Delta's "Write Away" is an online membership application for chapters to manage their membership lists and use a host of other functions. Chapters can enroll new members, make membership payments, modify chapter and member information, and update the chapter directory.
  • Task Tracker is a secure web-based ASP.Net application used internally by some NIU departments to track tasks and time on a project. Users, managers and administrators enter and manage time, produce highly customizable reports, and manage systems, projects and users. The application uses a service-oriented model to offer synchronization support for third-party task-tracking applications, such as Microsoft Project.
