DCCCD has launched a new portal this fall (2013) called “myPortal.”
A portal is a “login required” website that provides access to multiple Web services (such as eConnect, email and Colleague), personalized information (such as class schedules and targeted announcements, events and news) and links to pertinent pages on the district and college websites.
myPortal is built on Microsoft's SharePoint platform, the same set of Web services that power the district website, www.dcccd.edu.
Why Use a Portal?
Using myPortal will make it quicker and easier for students, faculty and employees to access the Web services, information and websites they need in one convenient location.
The myPortal website will combine Colleague information and services with Microsoft SharePoint Web publishing, collaboration and social networking tools. (SharePoint is the technology platform used to publish the district and several college websites.) In turn, SharePoint tightly integrates with Microsoft Office applications and the district’s new Microsoft Outlook/Exchange email system. The result will be an intuitive, Web-based workspace students, faculty and employees can use for their day-to-day work.
Students, faculty and employees will each have a portal landing page with similar layouts and functionality, optimized by design for their needs and containing information specifically targeted and relevant to them.
