York plans "revolutionary" student portal for 2008

November 8, 2007

York University promises to launch a new online utility for students that will revolutionize relations with the university, by May 2008.  The new personalized and customizable web portal will be launched for the 2008 summer term, and will bring schedules, campus emails, reminders and announcements into a single web page.  uToronto and Ryerson University, as well as some of York's own departments, have already launched similar web portals with considerable success.  The portal will replace the "Current Students" section of the Yorku.ca website.
