The LookUP website for students has had a name change. The site will now be known simply as the student website and can be found at www.port.ac.uk/students. All links to LookUP will remain the same.
The change comes as we introduce a new name in student online services for 2012.
From today, the complementary student site and replacement for the student portal – Myport – is live. Myport brings together the news, events and support services that you would normally see on the LookUP pages with the personal information from the student portal and your Google account.
Myport has been trialled during 2012 and feedback from students has been very positive. Students who participated in the trial welcomed the ability to see much more information all in one place and were pleased with the ability to sign up to see their timetables on their smart phones.
What will I see on Myport?
You can access Myport via the student website at www.port.ac.uk/students, and just need to log in with your student google username and password. Once there you can see your student email, personal google calendar, and student news and events right on the front page.
Under the My Learning tab you can view your timetable. You can now also subscribe to iCal and have your timetable delivered to your google calendar or any other calendar system. This means you can now view timetables on your smart device (iPhone or iPad for example).
You can access your contact details, timetable and assessment marks. You can also see your units and access your virtual learning environment – either Victory or Moodle – the site will automatically direct you.
My Support and Information
Here you will find links to all the student support services and other useful information that you might need, the same as you can find currently on the student website.
The student website will be your default page on the University network, but make sure you bookmark www.port.ac.uk/students at home, where you can access Myport, Google, Victory, Moodle and all other student services.
