Reengineering El Racó


El Racó is the school’s intranet, which is accessible to all students, faculty and administrative staff. El Racó is intended to be the gateway to all services offered to different groups of people and therefore is integrated or linked to different information systems.

El Racó has been around since 1995 and has undergone several renovations, the last one in 2011. It was internally restructured and was given a new more modern graphic design, and also a usability study was performed.

El Racó is an ongoing project in which new features are continually being added. Since it was first launched, enhancements have been developed, some of which are explained as separate projects, an example would be the management of Degree Final Projects.
