What’s a Portal?
• A web portal is a web site that
brings information from diverse
sources in a unified way.
• Examples of public web portals
are AOL, Excite, Google, MSN,
“I use the portal to work remotely either at home
or when attending VCCS workgroup meetings. I
don’t need the portal for SIS access but find it easier
to do so, as it gives me access to not only the
production system but testing environments. The
only way to access AIS is by using the portal. I also
use it to access files on my shared drive and the
Richmond shared drives. Certain processes in
SIS/AIS require access/files on these drives.
Examples include MML+ student enrollment, grade
evaluations, class schedule, Bookstore download,
AIS/CARS reconciliations, etc. Also using the portal I
have access to all my favorite IE home pages.“

“I really appreciate having an easy access
intranet for our employees. I am very
impressed with how uncomplicated it is to
maintain and share documents, forms,
etc. I believe the use of this portal will only
grow and I anticipate it will be key in
electronic work flow in the near
future. What I have also noticed is I have
never had an employee contact me to say
they couldn’t find the information I referred
them to; it’s very user friendly for all.

“I enjoy have a place to save and share files
that I need that are accessible across
multiple devices and from various
locations. My administrative assistant and
evening coordinator is able to work with me
on projects. It is great to have a place for
committees and meetings.
I am learning and have a lot to learn…but it
is a helpful tool for organizing and managing
my office operations.”
