The UniTrento web portal is designed on an architecture that has been designed, implemented and maintained by the IT services management in cooperation with the Communication management, in order to take care of the technological aspects as well as the graphical and textual ones. Alongside it are other websites created to meet specific needs for organization and research: these could be personal websites based on a standard web content management system where the user -often a professor- autonomously posts some content, or websites designed by external companies. Among these services are also those platforms being accessible with authentication only, which enable the private management of some content (e.g. MyUnitn).
The service is designed with a tabbed interface (or profile: some of them are profiled according to the user’s role, while others can be freely set up) to collect widgets, components similar to the smartphone and tablet apps, that you can activate by choosing them from the list of the widget center (available on the wrench icon in the upper-right corner of the dashboard). Every user can therefore choose what he wishes to see inside and receive messages from the University, thanks to the granular profiling of users based on the University records.
