We're looking for a way to compel users to agree to revisions in our
AUP; right now, we simply update it on the web page and email the users
to urge them to go there, but we'd like to have a little more
accountability on an account-by-account level.
Unfortunately, we don't have any sort of campus portal, so that's not an
option. Also, since we're a very heterogeneous network (with Windows,
Mac, and Linux endpoints) we'd need something platform neutral.
How are other institutions dealing with this?
Much as Roger says, we (a) display the AUP when we have folks go through
the NAC process (every 28 days, the place goes crazy!), and (b) the
button below the fields for userid and password is labeled "I agree"
instead of "logon."
