Coming Soon – Illinois Tech‘s New Portal

This fall the Illinois Tech community will welcome Phase 1 of the updated 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 your 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 include:

  • An Integration with Blackboard – students will be able to see courses, assignments, due dates, and scores, right on the “Welcome Tab”
  • A new “Quick-View” Portlet – in the upper, right-hand corner of the screen, students will see a new portlet that will include GPA, credit hours, next bill’s due date, holds, and your registration pin.
  • A Personal myIIT Profile – the Students’ Welcome Tab will contain your ID photo, name, user ID, and HawkCard. There will also be a link to your contact information

Some current features of the portal will be works-in-progress at the time of the fall go-live date and will be reintroduced later in Phase 1 of the Portal Project. Other portal features will be retired. OTS will provide more information about the new portal in upcoming Illinois Tech Today articles.

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.
