University of Oxford

Keble College is one of the largest of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford. Netsight designed and built a new public website for the college, which is managed by the college's IT team. The site is built on Plone, with a number of custom developed extensions.

The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world, and is widely regarded as one of the world's leading academic institutions, consistently ranking in the top ten of the global league.

Like many further and higher education institutions, Oxford University have been active proponents of Plone for several years, with several internal teams developing on the platform. Netsight have acted as consultants, in both design and technical contexts, on a number of Plone-based projects with the University.

A selection of these are described here:

Keble College

Keble College is one of the largest of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford. Netsight designed and built a new public website for the college, which is managed by the college's IT team.

The site is built on Plone, with a number of custom extensions developed by Netsight.

Netsight also provided training to both developers and end users during and after the main project.

Medical Science Division

Netsight have worked with the Medical Science Division of Oxford University (including the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics) on a number of web projects, all involving Plone:

  • Integration with WebAuth single sign on system, allowing Oxford University students/staff seamless logins to Plone
  • Development of PrivacyField, allowing users to restrict access to personal information on a per-field basis


Netsight also provided training to both developers and end users during and after the main project.

Oxford and the Developing World

Oxford University commissioned Netsight to apply their technical experience of Plone and Zope 3 technologies to bring an existing portal up-to-date in line with current best practice.

The portal presents a variety of information to the public and internally to other university researchers including detailed profile information via a searchable database. Netsight produced a refined Plone 3 skin for the portal to simplify the access to this information and provide a user-friendly interface to the site as a whole.

Netsight have also worked closely with the team running the portal to further-develop Plone products that are used behind-the-scenes.
