My.epsb.ca student portal hits schools

In Tools on September 22, 2009 by TIPS Team Tagged: ,

Six district schools are currently using the my.epsb.ca student portal, which provides student at those sites with access to the same group of Share (Google) Apps tools that teachers have had access to for the last year.  While staff use Staffzone to get to their Share content, students will use my.epsb.ca to access these collaborative tools.  A move towards cloud computing and away from desktop applications (such as MS Office) will allow for greater flexibility with devices (e.g. Mac, iPod, Linux, etc.) and with where students can access their online tools.  For an overview of the project, visit the Share HELP site – this provides an overview of the Share (Google) Apps for staff and students.
