The Faculty of Mathematics and David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science are partnering with the Student Success Office to invite students to the student portal starting February 9.
This new online communications tool is enhancing the student experience by delivering just-enough, just-in-time information for current students.
The portal is mobile-friendly and customizable by each user. It aggregates existing academic and campus information to deliver time-sensitive content such as
- when and where exams are
- real-time GRT bus information
- what is being served in campus food outlets
- when academic deadlines are approaching
Over time, the portal will be a tool to help reduce the amount of mass email sent to students, by allowing staff to more effectively target specific student groups.
This short video explains the student portal and how it works.
Students across the faculty, both undergraduate and graduate, will be invited in groups to log into the student portal, starting February 9.
