Sponsored Features

A number of campus partners sponsor feature development for our Open Berkeley platform. With sponsored features, the requirements are driven by the campus sponsor, but the resulting feature will be available to everyone on our platform. Rather than being custom work for one particular website, our sponsors are willing to allow us to roll the features back into our platform, so all campus sites on our Open Berkeley platform can benefit!

Please email web-platform@berkeley.edu if you would like more information about any of the below items, or if you would like to discuss a new sponsored feature idea.
