The USAFA Cadet and Faculty Homepages are the result of an Institute for Information Technology Application IITA research effort to develop a single, consolidated access point for cadet information. This information includes individual course schedules, status of current operations, weather, and links to a full range of electronically available resources. Original research on this capability began in October 1999 under the title Cadet Personalized Educational Gateway CPEG. In August 2002, IITA began implementation of a prototype that would evolve into fully operational system which would be called the Cadet Homepage. The first prototype was deployed in January 2003 and a full deployment for the Class of 2007 occurred in August 2003. The entire Cadet Wing began use of the Cadet Homepage in February 2004 and, by August 2004, the Cadet Homepage had become the primary information resource for the entire Cadet Wing. During the 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 academic years the Cadet Homepage has been continually refined and enhanced. During the 2005-2006 academic year, the Cadet Homepage was extended to support the USAFA Faculty and Staff. This report documents the progress made to date on the Faculty Homepage project. Specifically, we enumerate the purpose and goals of the project, discuss capability developed, identify the basic research involved, suggest some other Air Force applications of this technology, and outline future directions. The purpose of the Faculty Homepage project was to extend the benefits achieved by the Cadet Homepage to the faculty and outline future directions.
