myEWU Portal Beta coming soon – PLEASE READ ME!!!

We’re excited to provide the EWU community with the first glimpse of our new university portal.  We want to take this opportunity to answer a few questions about the portal:

 What is  the myEWU Portal?

The web portal is an interactive web site that provides single sign-on access to different EWU information and services in a consistent “look and feel” to our campus community members —basically a “one-stop shop”!

 Why isn’t there much (or any) information for me? 

The only way for us to effectively implement system as vast and complex as a portal was to take a “Start small and grow”  approach, and we started with current students and a limited number of services.  We will be adding new roles (faculty, staff, etc.) and services throughout the summer, so keep checking back with us.

 What is a Beta? 

The myEWU Portal Beta is an early-release version of our portal system available to the Campus community to evaluate and test. A lot of stuff works, but we expect that there will be issues with a some of the features some of the time. If you find a problem, please let us know and then use the normal approach for connecting to EagleNET, Banner INB, etc.

 What if I see a problem?

Too bad! (j/k)  Please check the known errors posted in the portal – if you don’t see it listed, please send the problem or error to report-portal-issue@sharepointes.ewu.edu.  Make sure we get your contact information so that we can follow up with you!

What if I have a question, make a comment or a suggestion, or just learn more about the portal?

Please go here  http://sites.ewu.edu/ewu-portal-project/2011/12/08/portal-survey/ and tell us what you think, ask questions, etc.  You can also take the survey in this blog to suggest new content or services.

The portal project team wants your input!

What would make your digital life easier at EWU?  The portal project team wants to know!  Our goal is to make the myEWU portal the one-stop shop for all your EWU IT service and content needs.  To help us meet this goal, we have created a survey to allow you, the EWU community, to tell us what types of content and information services are the most useful to you.  To take the 10-minute survey, click on the MYEWU SURVEY across the top of this page.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Portal demo anyone?
