Front Page Reorganization

The very first page ANYONE sees (


Open an account page

  • Takes people to open acct and create/join project dialogue
  • No other info is there

Once Logged in to DETER

Once logged in they see these new links/one-item menus on top of their screen - clicking on those leads them to an environment customized for a given purpose

  • Experiment
  • Collaborate
  • Teach

There is a floating menu or something for "Information" that appears in each of these environments. It should be accessible somewhere even if one is not logged in. It contains:

  • Beginner's manual [Deter/Web/Beginners]
  • Complete manual (pretty much Emulab's stuff = beginner + advanced)
  • FAQ
  • Reference material
  • Build your DETER
    • This page has info how to build your own DETER, with pointers to Emulab stuff
  • Statistics (perhaps we don't need this menu item)
    • Any stats we want to display publicly such as usage, projects on DETER, project categories, user map

There are also news that appear prominently on each page. They fall into three categories: operational (testbed down..), conferences/research opportunities and new DETER features. We are not sure what's the right mechanism to make sure these are seen by most users.

We should more effectively display info about contacting us

Experiment environment

  • Begin an experiment
    • This page has links to begin a regular or risky experiment. Ideally it's one form with an option to make experiment risky.
  • Tools
    • This page takes users to an "exchange" place where they can submit their tools or look for tools submitted by others including us.
  • Node status
    • Same as now, shows which nodes are taken/free
  • Image/OS list
    • Same as now but I'm fairly sure that we could blend image and OS data into one. After all users seem to need just one?
  • Create/join project
    • Same as now but ideally blends create/join options into one page
  • Federate
    • Takes users to a place where they can create federated experiments

Teaching environment

Takes users to Moodle server

Collaboration environment

  • Chat
  • Discussion list
  • Any other social networking we come up with
  • Perhaps tool sharing should be available from this page too

DETER project goals and accomplishments

  • This is a redone ISI/Deter page with a nice welcome message and the following sections
    • News and events
    • Accomplishments
      • Publications
      • Classes
      • Testbed innovations
      • Testbeds we helped build
    • History and funding
    • Plans for the future
    • People
