"A portal is never finished, but needs to continuously grow in requirements and functionalities, driven by the real needs of the end users, in this case, students, while being constrained by technical and organizational realities."

This is also true for most kinds of information systems (I am not talking about a word processor for example). The key is the nature of people and society (or communities). People are always changing and the inteactions between them as well. It is hard to keep a portal or any other information system in line with these changes, but that is our job. It isn't only about programming an application but looking at the people who will use it and who will be affected by it.
