On Friday, October 26, 2018, the Illinois Tech community will welcome Phase 1 of the updated myIIT.edu portal, experiencing its new look and feel.
One of the changes appearing in Phase 1 involves the icons you now see at the top of the screen; those icons will no longer be visible unless you click on the ‘grid’ in the top, right-hand corner of the screen. The new setup works in the same way as it does when you are trying to access the various Google apps.
Additionally, a few of the benefits that students will see on their new "Welcome Tab" include:
- An Integration with Blackboard – You will be able to see your courses, assignments, due dates, and scores;
- In the new “Quick-View” Portlet section - In the upper, right-hand corner of the screen that contains this new portlet, you will be able to see your: GPA; credit hours; next bill’s due date; holds; and your registration pin; and
- Your Personal myIIT Profile – Your ID photo, name, user ID, and HawkCard will all be visible, and there will be a link to your contact information.
One of the current features of the portal, the Mypages application in the Training and Support Tab, will be a work-in-progress as of October 26, 2018 release date; the application will be reintroduced later in Phase 1 of the Portal Project.
The Portal Project will occur in phases over the course of a few years. In Phase 2, each tab in the portal will be reviewed with the relevant stakeholders and redesigned to maximize its usefulness to the Illinois Tech community.
