Funnelback for higher education is a pre-configured search solution designed for the higher education sector, built from years of Funnelback expertise working with universities.
It provides a set of common university search features packaged in an easy and quick to deploy solution.
Funnelback for higher education is divided into multiple components:
A set of example component data sources (e.g. courses, events, faculty), with predefined metadata class mappings.
A set of re-usable display component templates (e.g. tabs, facets, video-style result, course-style result)
A results page that defines the search results template and static resources.
A search package that draws together the different component data sources which are included in the search.
